Told in two distinct halves, Chungking Express follows two cops, played by Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung, who are both on the rebound from failed relationships.

They meet mysterious women and are drawn to them – Kaneshiro’s character to a heroin smuggler played by Brigitte Lin, and Leung to a waitress played by Faye Wong.

Director Wong Kar-Wai’s dreamlike tone and Chris Doyle’s stunning cinematography make this strange love story a joy to watch.
