Chung Hing sam Iam

Wong Kar-wai Hong Kong, 1994

comeandsee's rating of the film Chungking Express

Wong Kar Wai's best film, even alongside the masterpieces of In the Mood for Love and 2046. Characters feel earthly real, you can feel them and know them. His combination of the musical and the visual is superb as always. His treatment of the moment, which can define two people, I also found a little less harsh than in later movies, even if the undercurrent of melancholy which define his films remains
