A little gem…
I love this film. There, that is as simple as I can make it out. I am not going to go into any details about the plot (some people have accused it of not having one)or what takes place in the film, just want to say that this is the real deal. A film about love that is mired in reality (though shot through the lens of alcehmist – truly a visual experience to be savoured)though not gritty reality, just every day boring life and love, the sort of love we go through each day ourselves, the kinda incomplete love where two people touch each other briefly and spend more time dreaming of what could be rather than it actually taking place. A film that is romantic in all the right places, in all the right ways (believe me it will make you smile not reach for the sick bucket – Hollywood take note)and has a deft light comic touch that leaves you smiling in recognition at the heartbreak rather than crying over it. The acting and script are both first rate – tony leung can do no wrong in my book – and overall it leaves you hungry for more little gems like this. (Either that or wishing you were in love…)
The way men love!
There is something very personal and intimate about this film that I missed the first time I saw it. Chunking was recommended to me by a friend of mine whose opinion I value, so I tried it again – and I believe I got it.
Looking back on many of the romantic films I have enjoyed, I noticed that the main characters are usually women. Even those with men don’t delve with any sophistication into the male heartbreak. As a result, I am not sure I know how to properly grieve a failed relationship. LOL.
Here the heroes both suffer from failed relationships. In the first story we don’t really see anything of his relationship, we just see that he held on a little too long. More important than the relationship or the reason it didn’t work is the aftermath and the acute dysfunction with which he approaches the next. In his first ‘May Relationship’ he claims the failing was not knowing enough about her so he tries to ‘get to know’ more about his new ‘blonde’ love.
In the second story, the cop falls in love with a woman he doesn’t even know. How about that for consistency of the way many of us dudes love? When we fall for women, we often fall for the idea of what they represent to us at the beginning rather than the reality of what she is. The shot that Wong Kar-Wai captured in the second cop’s apartment in which the heroine hid on the wall in plain sight and the cop looked in the bathroom missing her completely was a fair characterization of the film. — The male characters fell in love with the idea of a predefined woman and missed, in essence the women that were right under their noses.
