Synopsis

Wong Kar-Wai's celebrated portrait of neon-lit city populated by love-lorn cops, dangerous drug smugglers and California dreamers. The film comprises of two separate stories, the first of which features a cop (Takeshi Kaneshiro) who falls for a mysterious woman (Brigitte Lin) in a late night bar, little knowing that she is a big-time heroin smuggler. The second story features another cop (Tony Leung) who regularly visits a late night diner where he is served by a girl (Faye Wong) who has a huge crush on him; the girl then begins breaking into the cop's apartment, cleaning it for him, and adding little touches to help him get over the departure of his air-stewardess girlfriend.
