    Detective Bun was recognised as a talented criminal profiler until he sliced off his right ear to offer as a gift at his chief's farewell party. Branded as 'mad' and discharged from the force, he has lived in seclusion with his beloved wife May ever since. Strangely, Bun has the ability to 'see' a person's inner personality, their subconscious desires, emotions, and mental state. When a missing police gun is linked to several heists and murders, hotshot inspector Ho calls on the valuable skills of his former mentor Bun to help unlock the killer's identity. Bun's unorthodox methods point to a fellow detective and take a schizophrenic turn for the worse...

    Nominated for the Golden Lion at Venice and winner of multiple awards worldwide, including Best Screenplay at the 27th Hong Kong Film Awards 2008, Mad Detective is a fast-paced and furious, yet also complex and disturbingly funny masterpiece.
