Freaking Frenzy - Hong Kong. A Love Story without an Actual Story

Johnnie To’s “Sparrow” (2008) is everything except an overly masculine, die-hard gangster film for which the director is known for. “Sparrow” is a romanticising portrait of Hong Kong at its best. The cinematic homage is an associative, photographic, anecdotal and most of all episodic film.
