Chungking Express

Play trailer

Wong Kar Wai / HK, 1994 / 102 min.

Wong Kar Wai broke through with Chungking Express. His enchanting mix of urban life, Asian culture, crime, passion and the music of The Mamas & The Papas (California Dreamin') became an icon of the 1990s.

In the remarkably styled Chungking Express – now screening in 4K – two policemen (Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung) suffer from a broken heart. One of the two tries to cope with his loss by running, the other one is so stricken by the loss of his girlfriend that he is blind to the fact that snack bar worker Faye is quietly but madly in love with him.

Eye has re-released six films by Wong Kar Wai in collaboration with Cinéart. With the exception of The Hand, all films are restored in 4K.
