This taut thriller comes from the directing team behind the internationally acclaimed Infernal Affairs trilogy, which inspired Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning The Departed. Two cops stumble upon a juicy bit of insider trading information during a surveillance job, and see no harm in trying to make a quick (but illegal) killing on the stock market. Their personal and professional lives begin to unravel when the plan backfires, and they find themselves in the crosshairs of a deadly criminal gang. Overheard is hailed by Time Out Hong Kong film critic Edmund Lee as “a character drama so sleek in its plotting that you’d be hard-pressed to find a genuinely frivolous scene.” (dirs.: Felix Chong and Alan Mak, 2009, 100 min., Cantonese with Chinese and English subtitles)
