The basketball star Rui destroyed his career when he beat up an annoying fan during a match. Now he spends his days as a parking attendant … until he gets kidnapped one evening by none other than the notorious “rain coat bandit”, who has been terrorizing the Taiwanese harbor town Kaohisung with brutally effective money-transport robberies. The two of them join forces for the next coup, but that sparks a tricky game of cat and mouse. Can the other one be trusted? The Scoundrels is the debut feature by the Taiwanese director Hung Tzu-Hsuan and it is produced with breathtaking accuracy: this criminal (anti) buddy film is a perfect mix of excitement, action, and black humor.

Tzu-Hsuan Hung
graduated from the Department of Radio, Television & Film at Shih Hsin University and made a few award-winning short films when he was still a student. He is regarded as a rising director in Taiwan and known for his skillfully designed action choreography and mise-en-scène. Taiwanese mafia is a recurrent theme in his works. The Scoundrels is Hung’s first feature film.
