Johnnie To is one of the most important directors working in Hong Kong today and Life Without Principle one of his most complex and satisfying works. Set against the backdrop of the global banking crisis, the film interweaves a number of stories as Hong Kongers try to make ends meet within a system that seems stacked against them.
