Kidnapper (Bang Fei): L.A. Premiere
Screening on Friday, September 30th.
Singafest is proud to present the L.A. Premiere of Kidnapper (Bang Fei).
2010, Mediacorp Raintree Pictures, 98 min., Singapore. A taxi driver’s son is mistakenly abducted in place of a rich man’s child, setting off a brutal, thrilling cat & mouse game as the desperate cabbie tries to raise the ransom before time runs out. But halfway through, fate throws an unexpected twist, and the driver suddenly finds himself crossing the line between good and evil in an attempt to save his own son. Acclaimed Singapore director Kelvin Tong delivers a tense, satisfying spin on Kurosawa’s classic HIGH & LOW, fueled by a standout performance in the lead role by Singapore/Malaysian Chinese star Christopher Lee (no relation to the Hammer Films star.) (In Mandarin with English subtitles.)
