Once Upon a Time in Triad Society

Wong Kok cha 'fit' yan

Directed by Cha Yuen-Yee
Hong Kong, 1996


Wounded triad boss Kwan arrives at the hospital where he recalls his life, what might’ve been and what probably was. A film about the life and fables of an ugly little gangster, this movie is the antithesis of the ‘Young And Dangerous’ films.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
