A nimble takedown of corporate corruption and greed, Office tells its story as a witty musical extravaganza. Featuring superstars Chow Yun-Fat and Sylvia Chang, the story is set amidst the initial public offering of a billion dollar company in the wake of the global financial collapse of 2008. Poised to make millions, the company’s executives scramble to cover their scheming tracks during an audit. Johnnie To, past master of breathtakingly inventive action choreography, turns to dance and an inventive set to create his lavish spectacle, “At once sharp and exceedingly playful … a nimble political soft shoe with filmmaking dazzle.”—Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.
