Fallen Angels

4

The story of a professional killer and his partner in crime.

So Wong, it’s right.

A forlorn hit man (pop star Leon Lai)... his stunning female agent (former Miss Hong Kong Michelle Reis)... a bleach-blonde punk girl (Karen Mok)... a mute ex-con (House Of Flying Daggers’ Takeshi Kaneshiro)...

They swish past each other in the night, we swish past them, as rain and neon splatter down DoP Christopher Doyle’s wide-angle lens and Hong Kong stylist Wong Kar-wai jazzes up a hipster cine-collage of romantic loneliness in the city.

Soak it up like a mad, melancholy dream: fresh, sad, exciting, beautiful and mysterious.
