PARADOX (Directed by Wilson Yip)****

In Hong Kong, a wonderful little daughter and Li Chung Chi, her dad – a former cop - are as close as can be. The mom was killed in a car accident (shown in flashbacks) The daughter, now grown up, goes missing in Taiwan. The dad is devastated. The cop in Taiwan likes Li and together they decide to help one another. Bu Li is on a war path to find his daughter. He eventually does and the reason for her disappearance is ghastly and full of political intrigue. Lots of incredible Kong-Fu and just enough violence to make you shudder. What will happen to Li is not what he wanted, but with revenge, you have to pay the piper. (Screened at the New York Asian Film Festival)
