Throw Down was released in 2004, and is a tribute to the legendary film master Akira Kurosawa. Not only is it a Hong Kong film classic to many cinephiles, it is also Johnnie To’s favourite work of his own. The digitally restored version of Throw Down premiered internationally as the closing film of the 20th Udine Far East Film Festival. Throw Down is handpicked by Back to the Past’s first-time co-director Jack Lai, who has assisted directing experience in several films by Johnnie To. The film has been especially chosen by Lai to encourage himself and other people not to give up in the face of adversity.

In this visually arresting action drama from acclaimed director Johnnie To (Running On Karma, Breaking News), legendary Judo fighter Sze-To (Louis Koo from The Suspect) unexpectedly gave up the sport and now lives the life of an alcoholic gambler who runs a pub. However, cocky Judo champion newcomer Tony (Aaron Kwok from The Storm Riders) wants to challenge him to a duel, while old foe Kong (Tong Leung Ka Fai from Ashes of Time) demands Sze-To to finish the match that never took place. Soon Sze-To's pub became the ultimate arena where the greatest Judo fighters show off their skills. As a result, he vows to take on his opponents before his reason for his early retirement is exposed. Filled with brutal, no-holds-barred Judo fight scenes performed by the actors themselves, Throw Down is an emotional tale of one man's determination to win at all costs.
