Acclaimed director Kar-Wai's neo-noir fantasy about a hitman who is disturbed to realize that he is falling for his partner. Throw into the mix a mysterious drifter who is searching for her ex-boyfriend and a humorous mute, and the results are an ingenious blend of art and entertainment, set amidst Hong Kong's bleak, urban landscape. One of the decade's most influential foreign films.
