重慶森林: Chungking Express, 1994

On May 1, 1994, a woman wishes me happy birthday.
Now I’ll remember her all my life.
If memories ever come in a can, I hope that can never expires.
If it has to have a shelf life, I hope it’s 10,000 years.

Valentine’s Day theme, feature story is ‘OPPOSITE ATTRACTS’. I did an illustration on the article.
The characters in the 10 films featured in this article are opposite in personality, appearance, fashion, and values, but attracted to each other.
It tells how the opposite attraction works in relationships and even fashion styles.


Chungking Express is a 1994 Hong Kong drama film written and directed by Wong Kar-wai. The film consists of two stories told in sequence, each about a lovesick Hong Kong policeman mulling over his relationship with a woman. The first story stars Takeshi Kaneshiro as a cop obsessed with his breakup with a woman named May, and his encounter with a mysterious drug smuggler (Brigitte Lin). The second stars Tony Leung as a police officer roused from his gloom over the loss of his flight attendant girlfriend (Valerie Chow) by the attentions of a quirky snack bar worker (Faye Wong).
“Chungking” in the title refers to Chungking Mansions in Tsim Sha Tsui, where Wong grew up in the 1960s. “Express” refers to the food stand Midnight Express, located in Lan Kwai Fong, an area in Central, Hong Kong.
