The Goldfinger

In Felix Chong’s The Goldfinger, Tony Leung and Andy Lau, reprising their roles as on-screen adversaries from Infernal Affairs, dive into the glitzy, blockbuster-style portrayal of a real-life financial corruption scandal in Hong Kong. The film draws inspiration from the tumultuous saga of the Carrian Group, a Hong Kong conglomerate that soared to unprecedented heights in the early 1980s before crashing amidst accusations of fraud and the mysterious murder of a bank auditor.

The Goldfinger emerges as a riveting crime thriller, ensnaring audiences with its intricate narrative and compelling characters. Chong’s adept storytelling intricately threads together a tapestry of deceit, betrayal, and redemption, ensuring a gripping experience that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats from the opening scene to the final credits. Bolstered by stylish direction and a palpable atmosphere that plunges viewers into the murky depths of the criminal underworld, the film delivers a visceral and immersive cinematic journey. It has taken more than a year to finally be able to present the Austrian premiere of the film. Now it will come true. Let’s celebrate the high art of filmmaking together!

Felix Chong stands as one of Hong Kong’s most celebrated screenwriters, adorned with numerous accolades from Hong Kong Film Awards. Renowned for his work on Infernal Affairs, co-written with Alan Mak, Chong has left an indelible mark on the industry. His repertoire includes other notable works such as Infernal Affairs 2, Infernal Affairs 3, Initial D, Dance of a Dream, and Confession of Pain. In 2018, he demonstrated his directorial prowess with Project Gutenberg (Red Lotus 2022), featuring a stellar cast including Chow Yun-fat and Aaron Kwok.
