Fallen Angels15

Starring Wong Kar-Wai | Hong Kong | 1995 | 1h 36m | Cantonese w/ English subtitles | Starring Leon Lai, Michelle Reis, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Charlie Yeung

A disillusioned hitman attempts to escape from his violent lifestyle in this hallucinatory tale of lost souls reaching out for human connection in the glimmering night world of Hong Kong. Part hardboiled noir and part dazzling city symphony, Wong Kar-Wai’s poignant meditation on love and loss was originally conceived as a segment of Chungking Express only to spin-off on its own woozy axis.

Reviews

‘Wong Kar-Wai’s cinematic style is unmistakable: hip, colourful and energetic and the film’s frenetic pacing and exuberant camera work make the streets of Hong Kong a neon wonderland.’
Andrea C Basora, Newsweek

‘An exhilarating rush of a movie, with all manner of go-for-broke visual bravura that expresses perfectly the free spirits of [Wong’s] bold young people.’
Kevin Thomas, The LA Times

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
