Looking for a DVD called "One"

My son wants a movie I apparently bought in a lot and resold a while ago. He said its called "One" (not "The One" with Jet Li). Apparently it was about a Japanese mob boss.

Can't do a search on that small of a word and a search of "One" in the price search brings up 576 movies with the word.

Anyone know this movie? Names of actors or some way I can search for it?

Thanks!

He probably means Bo hau (To Be Number One), which is about a mob boss in Hong Kong.

Thanks, that's an awesome site. Something tells me he has the title a bit wrong but I think that site, and its intelligent search will produce some results!

Ah so!

I'll show him the cover when he gets home and see if he recognizes it.

Thanks!

Okay, I appreciate your help. I showed him your results and he said it was not the movie. So, he finally broke down and called a friend a few minutes ago. (don't forget, we rarely ask for directions either) Consider this: he has been looking for this movie for a couple of months and just asked me about this yesterday.

The title "One" suddenly turned into "Brother"!

Brother is the title name and we found it at the imbd site. How "one" sounds like "brother" is beyond my comprehension so I'm just letting that one go!

Still wonder why I had to help him look?
