放逐 | Exiled

Exiled

Set in a Macau, China, that resembles more a Mexican town than anything Chinese, this film by the acclaimed director Johnnie To starts as four mysterious outlaws descend on the house of a fellow criminal Wo, who is living a quiet life with his wife and baby. Two of the hoods, Blaze and Fat, have come to kill Wo, on the orders of their Boss, while the other two, Tai and Cat, have come to save him. Both sides know each other well, having grown up together, and soon the group decides to save Wo’s life, and run from the Boss’ hired guns.

花样年华 | In the Mood for Love

In the mood for Love

Hong Kong, 1962. Chow Mo-wan and Su Li-zhen move into neighboring apartments on the same day. Their encounters are polite and formal—until a discovery about their respective spouses sparks an intimate bond. At once delicately mannered and visually stunning, Wong Kar-wai’s In the Mood for Love is a masterful evocation of romantic longing and fleeting moments in time.

Directed by Kar Wai Wong | Starring : Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Maggie Cheung, Ping Lam Siu, Tung Cho ‘Joe’ Cheung, Rebecca Pan | Presented at Cannes Film Festival, Edinburgh Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, San Sebastian Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Reykjavik Film Festival, Hong Kong Film Festival, Rotterdam Film Festival, Mar del Plata Film Festival, Bangkok Film Festival, Cinemanila Film Festival, Thessaloniki Film Festival
