Director: Wong Kar-wai Run Time: 96 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 1997 Language: Chinese
Starring: Leslie Cheung, Tony Leung Chiu-wai
One of the most searing romances of the 1990s, Wong Kar Wai’s emotionally raw, lushly stylized portrait of a relationship in breakdown casts Hong Kong superstars Tony Leung and Leslie Cheung as a couple traveling through Argentina. Locked in a turbulent cycle of infatuation and destructive jealousy, they break up, make up, and fall apart again and again. Wong crafts a feverish look at the life cycle of a love affair that’s by turns devastating and deliriously romantic.
