Tony Chiu-Wai Leung was unaware that his character does boxing. Director Kar-Wai Wong made Chiu Wai take boxing lessons and later filmed fight scenes that were cut from the final film. Wong said Chiu Wai's performance was improved because of the energy he had from boxing. See more »

I didn't see Chang, but I saw his family. I finally understood how he could be happy running around so free. It's because he has a place he can always return to.

Innovative, special and inspired. I runned into the cinema, having no idea of what kind of movie was expecting me. It was a big surprise. The story was really nothing that would interest me in anyway, but this is the proof, that beauty is on the form .
What an amazing film! Full of resources and passion. They say it wasn't all new, or maybe any of it, but it was elegant, and unusual.
I was touched, and amazed. For me it was the revelation of a genius. His following works confirmed this impression. Wong Kar Wai is a great artist.
Thank you very much!
