Slice of life-y, poignant, beautifully shot but ultimately a little pointless, mundane and draggy. Not a happy movie (in any way that I can see at least) so that was a bit of an irony.

Plot synopsis: Lai Yiu-Fai (Tony Leung) and Ho Po-Wing (Leslie Cheung) are a Hong Kong gay couple stranded in Buenos Aires. Pretty much as the film starts, their romance comes to an end. Yiu-Fai is fed up with their troubled on/off relationship and Po-Wing's antics. Both men start working to pay their way back home: Yiu-Fai as a bouncer at a tango club, while Po-Wing becomes a rent boy. When Po-Wing is beaten up and Yiu-Fai has to take care of him, they briefly get together again.

Films Due A Quality Blu-ray Transfer (9 movies items)

" I'm not sure if the level of esteem I hold for this film is quite the same as when I first saw it. But one thing stayed constant - that is Christopher Doyle's highly impressive cinematography. Despite my soft spot for the film, the much revered In the Mood for Love will probably be the one that gets the greenlight so I'm not getting my hopes up for this one."
