This classic whodunnit, in which a detective has to rely on a parrot as the sole witness to a murder, is written and directed by Fung Chih-chiang (The Midas Touch, The Bounty). A captivating crime thriller A Witness out of the Blue stars a whole host of Hong Kong entertainment talent such as singer and actor Louis Cheung (Ip Man 3, Two Steps from Heaven), Philip Keung (Shock Wave) and Louis Koo (A Chinese Ghost Story).


A man is found dead inside an apartment and a strange voice shouting “Help! Help!” is heard near the body. Detective Frank Lam (Cheung) arrives at the scene with his commanding officer Yip Sir (Keung) to find the sole survivor and eye witness to the attack is a parrot. Yip Sir is convinced the deceased was killed by his partner in crime Sunny Wong (Koo). However, when Frank confronts Sunny, he denies all allegations and names Yip Sir as the killer. Therefore, Frank’s only hope in cracking the case lies in the feathered and not-so-human witness.
