The movie Starts in Osaka, where Chinese lawyer Du Qiu arrives at a small pub and talks to a barmaid Rain about the beauty of the old movies. A moment of beauty and nostalgic self-reflection abruptly interrupted by the second waitress Dawn, who sends you away from Qiu. Seconds later, the two reveal themselves as killers, calmly and in the classic style of John Woo - slow and half-hung motion in the air - the Yakuza in the next room collapsing without time. Here we are only in the fifth minute of the film, but it can already be said that Woo here is not only content, but above all in his film, aesthetics offers a pastiche of his works in the 80s and 90s. He works with vignettes, many crossfades and brings of digital material an interesting beauty that, along with the light, truly resembles the neon-esque films of the decades.
