2007's largest grossing film at the Hong Kong box office - the smash-hit Mad Detective - is one of the freshest and most satisfying films from that country in a decade. The traditional Hong Kong police film is turned on its head: the imaginative twist being our hero - Detective Bun (a role created for Lau Ching Wan) - who has the ability to 'see' people's inner personalities or "hidden ghosts". Breaking new ground and establishing new cinematic rules, Johnnie To's latest giddily entertaining collaboration with Wai Ka Fai radically raises the level of storytelling in modern film. The Masters of Cinema Series proudly presents the winner of Best Screenplay at the 27th Hong Kong Film Awards 2008.

Special Features:
• Q&A with Johnnie To at the Cinémathèque Française - Johnnie To retrospective
• Exclusive cast interviews shot during the Far East Film Festival featuring Lau Ching Wan, and Lam Suet
• Interview with Johnnie To for the French theatrical release of 'Mad Detective'
• Original UK theatrical trailer
• 16-page booklet containing specially commissioned essay by David Bordwell (Jacques Ledoux Professor of Film Studies,University of Wisconsin-Madison)
