The odd one dies
(Loeng go zek nang wut jat go)

by Patrick YAU


Mo is a gangster in debt. The only way out is to take an $88,000 hit job that pretty much guarantees his death. The night before his operation, Mo wins $200,000 at the gambling table and decides to pull out. His agent finds a replacement Carmen, a pale wisp of a girl who would do the job for him for a much cheaper price. Mo falls secretly in love with Carmen.

Patrick Yau’s first film, The Odd One Dies, shows an already mature style. The characters’ silence links up with the singular treatment given to the ever confined exteriors : transport, narrow streets, tiny bars. Here, something is falling apart, bodies exhaust themselves seeking to either find or lose themselves.
