Winner of the Best Director prize at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, Wong Kar-Wai's HAPPY TOGETHER is a stunning display of filmmaking style and a touching story of love on the brink of dissolution.
Hong Kong cinema superstars Tony Leung and Leslie Cheung play a pair of lovers living out the waning days of their relationship as expatriates in Buenos Aires. Lusty tango bars, the salsa music of the La Boca sidewalks, and a hypnotic visit to the nearby Iguazu Falls give further dimension to the tensions growing between the two lovers.
With its "stylistic magic" (Newsweek), HAPPY TOGETHER cemented the international reputation of Wong, the director of such films as In the Mood for Love and Fallen Angels.
