This film was last shown on 19 August 2021
Wong Kar-Wai’s breakthrough second feature represents the first full flowering of his swooningly romantic signature style. The first film in a loosely connected, ongoing cycle that includes In the Mood for Love and 2046, this ravishing film is a dreamlike drift through the Hong Kong of the 1960s.
A band of wayward twenty-somethings—including a disaffected playboy (Leslie Cheung) searching for his birth mother, a lovelorn woman (Maggie Cheung) hopelessly enamoured with him, and a policeman (Andy Lau) caught in the middle of their turbulent relationship—pull together and push apart in a cycle of frustrated desire.
