Plot

Yiu-Fai and Po-Wing arrive in Argentina from Hong Kong and take to the road for a holiday. Something is wrong and their relationship goes adrift. A disillusioned Yiu-Fai starts working at a tango bar to save up for his trip home. When a beaten and bruised Po-Wing reappears, Yiu-Fai is empathetic but is unable to enter a more intimate relationship. After all, Po-Wing is not ready to settle down. Yiu-Fai now works in a Chinese restaurant and meets the youthful Chang from Taiwan. Yiu-Fai's life takes on a new spin, while Po-Wing's life shatters continually in contrast.
 

Comments

Imagine me and you... Despite winning Best Director at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival for Happy Together, director Wong Kar-wai has decidedly not made a follow-up worthy to the cinematic invention and wonder of the brilliant Chungking Express.Although the director employs the same French New Wave-style techniques showcased in his earlier work, and infuses the picture with a garish, saturated glow, the dreary story of two lovers who have traveled halfway around the world to Argentina only to break up and then make up and then break up again (and so on) very quickly wears out its welcome.Despite the directorial fireworks brought by its innovative director and a pair of solid performances from Leslie Cheung and Tony Leung Chiu-wai, Happy Together is really no different from a slate of like-minded, late 20th century relationship movies.
