As part of a month dedicated to Hong Kong’s cinema industry, the Centre for Assistance and Development of Movie Talents (TPD) will present a screening of the 1995 movie Fallen Angels tomorrow.
The crime-romance drama was written and directed by Wong Kar-wai, who has been dubbed Hong Kong’s cinema "grandmaster".
A disillusioned killer (played by Leon Lai) embarks on his last hit, but first he has to overcome his affection for his cool, detached partner. Thinking it’s dangerous and improper to become involved with a colleague he sets out to find a surrogate for his affections. Against the sordid and surreal urban nightscape (set in contemporary Hong Kong), he crosses paths with a strange drifter looking for her mysterious ex-boyfriend and an amusing mute trying to get the world’s attention in his own unconventional ways.
The movie will be presented in English with Vietnamese subtitles. Donation (at the door): VNĐ20,000/person. The screening will start at 7.30pm. — VNS
