Wong Kar Wai uses all the cinematic tools at his disposal to convey a sense of love and loss in this story of a male couple (Tony Leung and Leslie Cheung) on vacation in Argentina. Their on-again off-again relationship is marked by flashes of jealousy and disaffection as well as deep passion. Set against the uncertain future faced by the colony of Hong Kong’s cession to mainland China, it centers all those anxieties in one turbulent love affair.
