CHUNGKING EXPRESSCult filmmaker Wong Kar-wai's hugely influential breakthrough film is a supremely stylish com-
bination of love story and thriller, set in and around Hong Kong's infamous Chungking Mansions, a vast complex of shabby hostels, bars and clubs.
The film tells the stories of two lovelorn cops (Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung) and the women with whom they become involved:
a mysterious blonde-wigged drug dealer (Brigitte Lin), and an impulsive young dreamer (Fay Wong).
Featuring a charismatic cast, a cool pop sound-
track and stunning photography by Christopher Doyle, CHUNGKING EXPRESS is an unconventional and dazzlingly original modern day film noir.
(This film is also available on Blu-ray Disc)
