Originally conceived as the latter half of Chungking Express, Fallen Angels is a hardboiled neo-noir peppered with quirky oddball humour that embodies the feeling of a hallucinatory midnight stroll through downtown Hong Kong.
With all the dynamism of Chungking Express, Wong paints a stylish, brooding and bold picture of the restless neon-drenched metropolis where hitmen, crooks and femme fatales all share a common insatiable craving for human connection.
