This July fans of Hong Kong crime thrillers Eureka Entertainment has a treat coming this summer when they are set to release Ringo Lam’s Wild Search.
Lam’s mature, heart-wrenching Hong Kong crime thriller starring Chow Yun-Fat and Cherie Chung, presented on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK. Featuring a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase & Collector’s Booklet (First Print Run of 2000 copies only), available as a part of the Eureka Classics range from July.
Chow Yun-fat gives a career best performance in Wild Search, his third collaboration with director Ringo Lam (City on Fire, Full Contact).
Yun-fat plays Lau, a widowed police officer investigating a gang of gun runners. When a shootout with the criminals leaves a woman dead, and her daughter the only surviving witness, Lau must protect the young girl from the ruthless gang that wants her dead.
A loose reimagining of Peter Weir’s 1985 film Witness, Wild Search showcases Ringo Lam’s often underrated versatility as a director. With beautiful cinematography by Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs) and a dreamy score by Lowell Lo, Eureka Classics presents Wild Search in its UK debut on Blu-ray.
