Chungking Express

Two Hong Kong policemen fall in love with mysterious women from the underworld and a late-night restaurant server.


Why watch this film?

Depending on who you ask, 'Chung Hing sam lam' can be considered the third or fourth feature film of the great Hong Kong filmmaker, Wong Kar-Wai ('In the Mood for Love'), as it was made during a break in the production of 'Ashes of Time', and was released at the beginning of the same year. What is certain is that the movie marked his first undisputed success in Hong Kong and attracted greater attention from the international audience, with a markedly own visual and narrative style, emphasizing disconnected and fragmented stories about love and sorrow through hypnotic cadence images. In total contrast to his previous productions, 'Chung Hing sam lam' is a film that brings out the best of his vision, filmed by pure creative impulse of an independent spirit in less than a month.
