From internationally-acclaimed filmmaker Wong Kar Wai comes Happy Together, a compelling, emotionally complex drama starring award-winning actors Leslie Cheung and Tony Leung Chiu Wai. The two actors play lovers, whose tumultuous relationship is a never-ending process of breaking up and making up. The pair journeys to Buenos Aires to start over, but the cycle begins anew, each alternately completing and depleting the other, until the relationship can only disintegrate beneath their all-consuming passions.
Wong Kar Wai brings a lurid directorial style to Happy Together that's exciting and emotionally powerful. Aided and abetted by cinematographer Christopher Doyle, Happy Together leaps from the screen in an impressive blend of rich, passionate colors that bleed and fade into one another just like the two bickering lovers. A quirky, eclectic soundtrack, and brilliant acting from the two leads completes Wong Kar Wai's touching, pathetic ode to loves lost and loneliness suffered.
Co-starring Chang Chen, Happy Together was critically acclaimed upon release, and earned Wong Kar Wai a Best Director prize at the Cannes Film Festival. For his haunting, emotionally powerful work, Tony Leung Chiu Wai was awarded a Best Actor Prize at the 17th Annual Hong Kong Film Awards.
