Directed by Wong Kar-wai
With gorgeous, saturated images
set to an eclectic soundtrack of classic tangos, torch songs and Frank
Zappa instrumentals, Wong Kar-Wai chronicles the stormy affair of a gay
couple (Hong Kong superstars Tony Leung and Leslie Cheung) living as
expatriates in Buenos Aires. "Stylistically brash. Pulsing with life.
Captures the restless, open-to-everything spirit of youth" (Stephen
Holden, New York Times). Letterboxed. Cantonese with English
subtitles. 98 minutes.
