5.0 out of 5 stars Hong Kong New Wave At Its Finest, 6 April 2005
This review is from: Fallen Angels [DVD] [1996] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
As part of Wong Kar Wai's auteristic ouvre, Fallen Angels is one of the finest examples of the New Hong Kong New Wave cinematic genre. This film encompasses Wai's (with the help of cinematographer Chris Doyle) artistic talents, as well as his comedic and heart wrenching writing abilities. Telling the conjoined tales of a hitman and his female agent, as well as Takeshi Kaneshiro in a superb role as a mute, unemployed twenty-something, who forces his services upon members of the public (not in a rude way), Fallen Angels represents the fears of alienation upon the transfer of Hong Kong from British to Chinese rule in a moving way, regardless of the country you come from.
All I can say is, this film is an essential watch, whether you enjoy action comedy films, artistic films, asian cinema or you just want to try something different. Give it a go and you won't be disappointed.
