Fallen Angels by Wong Kar-wai (Hong Kong, 1995, 96 min). Set in the neon-washed underworld of Hong Kong, Fallen Angels intertwines two parallel tales about love and isolation with ultra-hip style and classical cinematic sensibilities. There’s a love affair between a contract killer and the ravishing female agent. Ex-convict He Zhiwu (Takeshi Kaneshiro) makes a living by re-opening shops that closed for the night and intimidating customers into buying goods and services from him. After an awkward romance with a girl named Cherry, He finds himself all the more alone.
