FALLEN ANGELSWong Kar-wai's matchlessly stylish and enigmatic urban thriller was originally planned as one of the storylines in his classic Chungking Express, but grew to become an accomplished feature in its own right.
Set in the neon-lit cityscape of contemporary Hong Kong, FALLEN ANGELS tells the parallel stories of the unrequited love between a professional hit-man and the agent who arranges his jobs, and also follows the mute ex-con who makes ends meet by breaking into and re-opening shops closed for the night.
Infused with a palpable sense of melancholy, romance and isolation, Wong masterfully weaves together his narrative strands with the trademark flair for visuals, editing and soundtrack choices that has brought him worldwide acclaim.
