Fallen Angels

Directed by Wong Kar Wai

Lost souls reach out for human connection amidst the glimmering night world of Hong Kong in this hallucinatory, neon-soaked nocturne.

Originally conceived as a segment of Chungking Express, it charts the subtly interlacing fates of a handful of urban loners, including a coolly detached hitman (Lai) looking to go straight, his business partner (Reis) who secretly yearns for him, and a mute delinquent (Kaneshiro) who wreaks mischief by night. Swinging between hardboiled noir and slapstick lunacy with giddy abandon, Fallen Angels is both a city symphony and a poignant meditation on love, loss, and longing in a metropolis that never sleeps.
