Happy Together15

Directed by Wong Kar-Wai | 1997 | 1h 37m | Cantonese w/ English subtitles | Starring Leslie Cheung, Tony Leung, Chang Chen

Lai and his boyfriend take a trip to Argentina in search of a new beginning, but instead find themselves drifting ever further apart. Released on the cusp of the 1997 handover of Hong Kong (when the country’s LGBT community suddenly faced an uncertain future), Wong Kar-Wai’s intoxicating exploration of displacement and desire is one of the most searing romances of the 1990s.

Reviews

‘The result is a take-no-prisoners movie from one of Hong Kong’s most idiosyncratic, shoot-from-the-hip filmmakers that’s the very antithesis of sentimental gay love stories.’
Kevin Thomas, The LA Times

‘Stylistically brash, pulsing with life.’
Stephen Holden, The New York Times

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!
