The daily actions of a group of pick pockets are suddenly interrupted by the unexpected appearance of a beautiful and mysterious lady, who turns the tables on them. Following her trail, the pick pockets are led to a face-off on the streets of Hong Kong with a rival pick pocket gang. Ultimately each gang fights for the possession of this enigmatic lady.
A comedy caper with comparisons to French New Wave work such as UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG, SPARROW has the stylish trademarks of a Johnnie To film, with a wonderful jazz-tinged soundtrack and a photographic blend of the nostalgic old Hong Kong and the modern skyscraper city. The film stars Simon Yam (TOMB RAIDER 3, ELECTION), Lam Kar Tun (ELECTION, TRIANGLE, VENGEANCE) and Kelly Lin (REIGN OF ASSASSINS).
