Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-wai creates his trademark nonlinear, atmospheric, boldly saturated aesthetic with this exceptionally well reviewed film. “There is no mistaking Wong’s talent,” writes Peter Travers of Rolling Stone.
Every day, Cop 223 (Takeshi Kaneshiro) buys a can of pineapple with an expiration date of May 1, symbolizing the day he'll get over his lost love. He's also got his eye on a mysterious woman in a blond wig (Brigitte Lin), oblivious of the fact she's a drug dealer. Cop 663 (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) is distraught with heartbreak over a breakup. But when his ex drops a spare set of his keys at a local cafe, a waitress (Faye Wong) lets herself into his apartment and spruces up his life.
