Wong Kar-Wai

A tribute to Wong Kar-Wai’s film-making. Including “Chungking Express” – possibly my all-time favourite film.

“Since 1989, Wong Kar-wai has directed seven feature films and won numerous awards, including the best director’s prize at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival for Happy Together.

Wong Kar-wai’s latest film is In the Mood for Love (花樣年華, lit. “Flower Like Years”). He is currently completing the science fiction film 2046 for release in 2004.

In 2001 Wong Kar-wai directed the short-film The Hire: The Follow as part of the BMW films initiative.
