Luddy is a devastatingly handsome Hong Kong lothario who seduces and abandons women without guilt. When he sets his sights on a lovely shop girl, he unknowingly sets of a chain of events leading to obsession, self-discovery, and shocking violence.
Before In the Mood for Love and 2046, Wong Kar Wai took his first look back at the Hong Kong of 1960 with this intoxicating cocktail of noir and romance. Star-studded and swooning—and his first film shot by Chris Doyle!—it shows the great romantic of 90s cinema coming into his own.
