FANCY THAT: CHUNGKING EXPRESS

A film of love and loss, the epic pain of heartbreak juxtaposed with the utter tantalizing lightness of falling in love - two cops, two leading ladies, two Cranberries covers (sung in Cantonese and Mandarin) - all set in the steamy crowded streets and corridors of the Chungking Mansion in Hong Kong. This movie seriously makes any rainy day better. WATCH IT.

PS, DON'T YOU THINK FAYE WONG IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL?!

  1. I watched this recently and really really liked it. Probably not as much as in the mood for love visually, but the story was so amazing.
