Another variation on The Godfather and Johnnie To’s Election saga, The Mobfathers is a re-imagination of the genre with undercurrents of keen social comment. After spending time in jail, Chuck (Chapman To) is immediately drawn into the power struggle that takes place before the election of a new chairman in the triad society. Anthony Wong is the ever intimidating “Godfather” that shines through the lenses of Herman Yau’s camera beginning from The Untold Story.
The film had its world premiere in March at the 40th International Film Festival.
Viewer’s discretion is advised as the film is classified category III for Hong Kong releases with adult content.
