Film description

When Jun comes from China to Hong Kong, Qiao is already there. The self-confident girl has a job at a McDonald's, a roguish smile, and a clear vision of her future. She already knows how to navigate the urban labyrinth, while Jun is still learning its topography. Their joint migrant experience and the need for closeness drive the two to spend more and more time with each other. Do they have a chance for a future together? Jun is planning to marry the sweetheart he left in his village, while Qiao is ready to reach for the stars.

This full-blooded melodrama, spiced up with elements of a romantic comedy, is one of the most beautiful love stories of contemporary cinema. Maggie Cheung shines in the role of Qiao, and Christopher Doyle, Wong Kar Wai's cinematographer of choice, appears on the screen in an autobiographical episode. The city is a character in its own right, both as a pitfall for the protagonists, and as their biggest life chance.
