Unique and lonely angels living in the city at night.
Wong Kar-wai’s 1995 film “Fallen Angels”. Set in Hong Kong at night, this work depicts the love pattern of five men and women, including a hitman, his agent, and a young man who can’t speak the language as he wishes, and colored my youth alongside “Chungking Express” (94). It’s one of the movies. The unique characters projected by the wide lens made me feel lonely as if I had left myself, and I remember that I had a strange resonance with my feelings at the age of 20 when I first saw it. The girls’ outfits, such as cute cheongsams and fetish lingerie-style dresses, are also the best, and I hope they will be a fashionable reference for this summer’s nightlife.
The good news is that Wong Kar-wai’s works such as “Fallen Angels”, “Chungking Express”, “Buenos Aires”, “In the Mood for Love” and “2046” can be seen at the cinema! From August 19th, it will be released sequentially nationwide, including Cinema Sunshine in Tokyo and Cinema Sunshine, and this time it will be screened in a 4K restored version with various parts such as screen size and color, so I have not seen it yet. This is a must-see for those who haven’t seen it and those who have already seen it! I would like to enjoy the best last scene of Takeshi Kaneshiro and Michelle Yo riding a motorcycle through the night world and welcoming the morning on a big screen again.
