Presented as part of our World of Wong Kar-wai season. After a science fiction author loses his ‘one true love’, several women enter his life over the course of a few years.

A train in a futuristic landscape takes passengers to a place where they can recapture their memories, a place from which no one has ever returned. This is the premise of a novel by the womanising sci-fi writer Chow (Tony Leung), who engages in passionate affairs with a series of intriguing women he meets at the Oriental Hotel in Hong Kong. As Chow’s lovers offer him inspiration for his writing, reality blends with fiction, and the past commingles with the future.

  • DIRECTOR: Wong Kar-wai
  • CAST: Tony Leung, Maggie Cheung, Gong Li, Wang Sum, Faye Wong
