Dir. Wong Kar Wai | 96min, 1997
With Tony Leung, Leslie Cheung

A new restoration of Wong Kar Wai’s emotionally raw, lushly stylized portrait of a relationship in breakdown—a celebrated influence on Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight.

One of the most searing romances of the 90s and a celebrated influence on Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight, Wong Kar Wai crafts an emotionally raw, lushly stylized portrait of a relationship in breakdown—shot by acclaimed cinematographer Christopher Doyle in both luminous monochrome and luscious saturated color.

Hong Kong superstars Tony Leung and Leslie Cheung are a couple traveling through Argentina, locked in a turbulent cycle of infatuation and destructive jealousy as they break up, make up, and fall apart again and again. Setting out to depict the dynamics of a gay relationship on the cusp of the 1997 handover of Hong Kong, when the country’s queer community suddenly faced an uncertain future, Wong’s volatile exploration of displacement and desire swoons with the ache and exhilaration of love at its heart-tearing extremes.

This 4K digital restoration was undertaken from the 35mm original camera negative by the Criterion Collection in collaboration with L’Immagine Ritrovata and Jet Tone. It was supervised and approved by Wong Kar Wai.
