  • Acclaimed Hong Kong New Wave director Wong Kar-Wai presents a kinetic, offbeat look at his city in these two stories. The first concerns a young woman (Brigitte Lin) who has been double-crossed in a heroin deal and her budding romance with a lovelorn cop (Takeshi Kaneshiro). The second deals with another officer (Tony Leung) whose girlfriend has left him and the young waitress (Faye Wong) who tries to help him without his knowledge.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Exhilarating....There is no mistaking Wong's talent..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...Head over heels with stop-motion...and gleefully spinning off socko genre lines..."
    Film Comment

    "...Visual flair....[Wong] displays aggressive energy..."
    New York Times

    "...CHUNGKING EXPRESS is as fresh as falling rain, a pair of love stories full of pain and humor....Wong has as wonderful a way with actors as he has with a camera..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Full of Wong's signature blurred slo-mo, this playful charmer interweaves two stories..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...Wong is more of an art director, playing with the medium itself, taking fractured elements of criss-crossing stories and running them through the blender of pop culture..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "A hip and quirky movie, perhaps, but one that's gently profound, too."
