One of my favourite Hong Kong feature film from Wong Kar Wai director. Chungking Express (1994) is a story about love relationship of 2 cops character. There are two stories which intersect together. The signature style of the director, Wong Kar Wai love to use the main characters' voice over as narrative story telling. He focused and showed the details of the characters inner feeling. All the main characters are the famous talents in the Asia Cinema, such as Takeshi Kaneshiro, Tony Leung Chu Wai and Faye Wong.
The highlight of the film was the wonderful soundtrack sing by Faye Wong. It's really matched the feeling of the scene (When she invade into Tony Leung's apartment house and has a home makeover). Most memorable part of this film is that Tony Leung didn't realise there are anything wrong and changes at his apartment. This feature film won the best actor (Tony Leung), best director and best picture at the International Film Festival. In this story, it's all about lover has the love addiction. This is a
My favourite quotes in this film:
Cop 223 (Takeshi Kaneshiro) "If memories could be canned, would they have expiry dates? If so, I hope they last for centuries"
My favourite scenes in this film:
Cop 663 (Tony Leung) talking to a soap, and also talking to a toy when he was alone.
Based on the story content, director, actors/actress, art direction, cinematic shots/angle, music background and sound effect. THE OVERALL RATING : ☆☆☆☆ OUT OF 5
