Vine con la lluvia

Juntitos dos de los hombres con ojos chiquititos más bonitos del mundo. Como dicen que no informamos os dejamos lo que dicen los de Twitch, que de cine saben mucho más que nostros, aunque de ojos... de ojos no.

Much acclaimed director Tran Ahn Hung of Cyclo and The Scent of Green Papaya fame looks set to take his career ina startling new direction with his new film, I Come With The Rain, an international crime thriller with a sterling global cast that includes Josh Hartnett, Lee Byung-Hyun, Takuya Kimura, Elias Koteas, Tran Nu Yen Khe and Shawn Yue. And, yes, I did just call Hartnett sterling ... the man has been saddled with a lot of bad roles thanks to the Hollywood pretty boy machine but he’s built for noir oriented stuff like this and he’s proven himself capable of very strong work when well matched to the material.

Kline, an ex-cop in Los Angeles traumatized by slaying a serial killer, is hired by a powerful corporate boss to go to the Philippines and find Shitao, his missing son. Kline’s leads take him to Hong Kong. Torn between good and evil, caught in the crossfire between a mafia drug ring and the police, he tracks down Shitao, who has become a mysterious vagrant.

Reading some of the more detailed materials available to buyers on this it’s clear that the film has a heavy supernatural element and Tran also promises a liberal dose of violence, a promise borne out by the bloody shots of stars Hartnett and Lee we’ve just dug up. Throw in soundtrack work by Radiohead and it’s hard to say no. You’ll find a gallery of nine stills at the link below.
