With a star-studded cast and crew, the Hong Kong film "Overheard" hit cinemas across the Chinese mainland on Friday. Early this week, producers Derek Yee and Alan Mak and the leading actors and actresses were in Beijing to promote the film.

"Overheard" shares the same cast and crew of the critical and popular film "Infernal Affairs." But in this one, there are no fights or bullets. The plot is concentrated on the challenge of gathering intelligence. The story unfolds through the performances of the A-list actors and actresses.

It's the first time that Lau Ching Wan, Louis Koo and Daniel Wu have appeared in the same film. All three play the bad guys. Daniel Wu marries a rich woman but is continuously looked down on by his father-in-law. Louis Koo gives an impressive performance in the role of a father who has cancer and four children to raise. And Lau Ching Wan plays the head of an information office who is consistently let down by life. Famous mainland actress Zhang Jingchu plays the wife of Lau in role that rarely shows up in a film led by men.
