Film description

Two Hong Kong cops with broken hearts, two subversive stories about impossible encounters. The officer with a badge number 223 can't come to terms with being rejected when fate puts a woman in a trench coat and a blond wig in his way. She is searching for the Indians who disappeared with her extremely valuable and somehow illegal package. Meanwhile, in a night takeout bar, the sharp eyes of the silent Faye are following officer 663, whose feelings have been stomped upon by a certain flight attendant…

This light, belligerent feature is one of the most important films defining the aesthetics of the 1990s. Its coarse, neon style is one of the most important reference points for the whole generation of filmmakers from all over the world. From stylish action cinema to a music video romance pulsating in the rhythm of "California Dreaming," it is a charming, mysterious story about loneliness and passing each other in a crowd.
