“This lyrical beauty, almost archaic.”
I am listening to you. And I am agreeing.
“The sway of the hips, the look. Where does it happen except in this magical, fictional space?”
The intense deliberation. Each look towards and away.
Each inhale of smoke & exhale of defeat.
The crushing elegance of it all.
“The hand brushed away. The hand grasping with an emboldened spirit. A knowing, only for the insider.”

This was such an awesome movie. Very real. Toni Leung has a few movies of this sort, but it was the first time I saw Maggie Leung in anything other than a Jackie Chan fun movie. Love Wong Kar Wai’s movies. Hope you’ve seen Chunking Express.
This is when I fell in love with Maggie Cheung.
This was indeed a great film, just beautiful in its subtlety, subdued color palette and acting.
