Dir/Scr: Wong Kar-wai
Prod Co: Block 2 Pictures
Co-starring: Tony Leung Chiu-wai, Chang Chen
1997 | Colour | DCP | Mandarin & Cantonese | 96min
Since its release, Wong Kar-wai's heartrending drama—about the on-and-off relationship of a gay couple in Buenos Aires—has been recognised as one of Hong Kong cinema's greatest romances. The characters' names—Lai Yiu-fai (Tony Leung Chiu-wai) and Ho Po-wing (Leslie Cheung)—and the images of them together have been forever etched in pop culture history. While Leung is the anchor as the grounded realist, it's Cheung's spirited performance as the carefree playboy—reminiscent of his ‘legless bird' metaphor in Days of Being Wild—that sparks the passion in one of the most accurate portrayals of a fractured romantic relationship ever put on film.
