Offbeat comedy drama from Hong Kong starring Leon Lai, Michele Reis and Takeshi Kaneshiro. The lives of three strangers are inexplicably intertwined. In Cantonese with English subtitles.
Cult director Wong Kar-wai follows up his hit Chungking Express with a glossy, freewheeling panorama of Hongkong's lowlife. Leon Lai is an injury-afflicted hitman who tries to bid farewell to life, Michelle Reis looks for love with a killer and Takeshi Kaneshiro finds trouble fitting in as a deaf-mute crook. Stylish, cool and sharp-looking, this is world-cinema arthouse movie-making at its sleekest, though unkind critics could say the director is a bit of an artful poseur.
