French new-wave meets Hong Kong action,
By A Customer
This review is from: Chungking Express [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Super stylish love story from acclaimed Hong Kong director Wong Kar-Wai. Originally written as three love stories linked by location (fast food bar), only two stories made it into this stunning movie, (the other story is forms the basis of the "sequal" Fallen Angels.) The film is stunningly shot around Chungking mansions (hence the title), a world of bladerunner-esqe twilight. I do not want to give away too much about the obsessionate love stories in this film as I strongly recommend that you watch it with an open mind. Music also features heavily, especially "California Dreaming". This film has probably sold more Mamas and Papas albums than anything. See this film and fall in love.
