| Pessimistic cop movie
This pessimistic cop movie was shown on german TV under the titel of 'Mann ohne Ausweg'. It tells the tragical story of an undercover policeman, very similar to 'Serpico'. The style is very minimalistic, very close to Hongkong streetlife, no visual effects etc. Important film of the Hongkong new wave in the eighties.
