Have now seen it. WOW. Tony Leung must be one of todays great actors (for proof, take a look at his work with Wong Kar-Wai). I wonder who will play his part in the Scorsese remake. Damon or DiCaprio?

I agree with you. Tony Leung is truly a great actor.
Other than his works with Wong Kar-wai, take look at ones with Hou Hsiao-hsien, Yimou Zhang and Tran Anh Hung.

Speaking of remake, my guess would be Dicarprio playing Tony Leung's part because I think Damon fits better in evil character.

Infernal Affairs is a great film. It is sort of Michael Mann meets Sergio Leone - and then it is a police thriller on top! SUPERB.
I can only recommend it to your all.

Have not yet seen part 2 and 3, but the reviews I have read suggest that they can not live up to the original. Part 2 is a prequal, by the way.

Here's info of remake:

Scorsese,Dicaprio and Matt Damon. intresting huh...

Aren't there 3 of these films? Never seen any of them, but will have to do so before the remake.

Yes there are 3 parts. My favorite is Part 2.

I Never Seen it, But I would. Rumor has it that Marty Scorsese may remake this film.

Sounds great! Scorses would be excellent choice.

General Discussion / Sergio Leone's Leningrad

Italian Filmmaker Has 'Leningrad' In Sights

Oscar-winning Italian director Giuseppe Tornatore is hard at work on the script of "Leningrad," an English-language historical epic depicting the Nazi siege of the Russian revolution's birthplace during WWII, the movie's producer revealed Thursday.

Breaking the wall of silence that has encircled the project since its announcement at the Festival de Cannes last month, the movie's Italian backer Medusa Film said it expected Tornatore to complete the script by the end of this year. "The 900-day German assault on this major Soviet city, now known as St. Petersburg, has become memorable because Hitler thought it would be quickly reduced to rubble.

 But in the end the Nazis were forced to retreat," managing director Gianpaolo Letta said. "It is a key WWII episode never seen before on Western movie screens," he added. The Medusa chief described "Leningrad" as a big-budget epic that would have an A-list international cast.

Talks are ongoing with a number of potential production partners. Medusa -- which is owned by Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi -- co- produced with Miramax Tornatore's latest work, the erotic period piece "Malena," which launched Monica Bellucci's international career. Tornatore's "Cinema Paradiso" won the 1990 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film.

I heared Leone's post-OUTIA project supposed to be something like this. I'm not sure Tornatore was inspired by Leone's idea but sounds like there's something to do with it.
Ennio Morricone is also joined as music composer.

I can't pick the worst film since there are so many Italian films I've never seen but 'Senso 45' was pretty bad even though music is still great.

I once saw a fantastic poster for OUATIA. It was a landscape poster with DeNiro's face on the left, and the three dead bodies of his friends lying on the ground on the right. Has anyone ever seen this, and do you know where I can get it?

I coundn't find that one but how about these?

Sorry What I meant was 'Drunken Angel' I don't know why I put that title. Just mixed up with something other in my mind.

Another favorite Brazilian film of mine is "Black Orpheus". Not a gangster film but a great film.

Thanks for recommendation Joe. I'll try.
