Money, in all its devastating shapes and forms, becomes the driving influence amidst a group of Hong Kong denizens in Johnnie To‘s 2011 finance-drama Life Without Principle (Dyut Meng Gam). More info as follows (via Venice):

“Life Without Principle tells the story of three characters: an ordinary bank teller turned financial analyst is forced to sell high risk securities to her customers in order to meet her sales target; a small-time thug delves into the futures index hoping to earn easy money to post bail for a buddy in trouble with the law; a straight-arrow Police inspector, who has always enjoyed his middle income lifestyle, is suddenly desperate for money when his wife puts a down payment on a luxury flat she can’t afford and his dying father wants him to look after a young half-sister he never knew he had.”
