Chungking Express has finally been Digitally Remastered! This DVD presentation of Wong Kar Wai's classic Hong Kong film is based on a newly-created HD master - a massive improvement over previous versions of the film.

From director Wong Kar Wai comes Chungking Express, a charming and breezy Hong Kong classic that's considered by some to be the director's signature work! Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Takeshi Kaneshiro star as a pair of cops who roam Hong Kong's Tsimshatsui and Central districts at night. However, it's not crime that occupies their thoughts, but failed relationships and missed romantic chances. Each finds their own possibilities in Hong Kong's fast-moving neon cityscape, among them a mysterious runaway smuggler (a blond-wigged Brigitte Lin) and a flighty but utterly charming counter-girl (Faye Wong) at the 24-hour Midnight Express deli. Using a full compliment of stylish and enthralling cinema powers, Wong Kar Wai manages to create a poetic, emotional, and endearingly quirky look at love in the big city that's both contemplative and breathlessly effervescent. A New Wave masterpiece with a dash of MTV sprinkled in, Chungking Express is a pop-culture valentine to a city that never sleeps, and the lovelorn individuals who look for - and sometimes find - love in the most unexpected of places!
