Killer worked with the Agent for three years. One day he took off into the emptiness of the night streets of Hong Kong. Among the irreal light of street lamps and unreachable roofs of skyscrapers the hero meets strange people: a girl looking for her mysteriously missing boyfriend, a mute salesman attracting the attention of customers to his goods in a not very usual way.

“Fallen Angels” is a film in many ways in tune with the brilliant “Chungking Express”: two love stories intertwined with each other. But unlike the light and positive “Express,” “Fallen Angels” is a heavier work. Here love can be not only salvation and comfort, but also terrible pain.
This is especially evident in the anguish of the former partner of the now ex-killer. Thin, fragile, white-skinned girl endlessly smoking one cigarette after another. Dialing “1818” on the jukebox. Broken. Crushed. Passion drowns her in an endless and murky ocean of pain.
A hitman who wants to break with his criminal past. He can’t make sense of himself and his feelings. But he knows for a fact that he doesn’t want to be together with his partner, so desperately in love with him.
A girl who dreams of getting revenge on her ex-fiancÃ©, who has decided to start a family with a certain Blondie. She doesn’t want to let go of her past and start a new life.
And finally, perhaps the most interesting character: the mute guy who owns his own shop or cafe or ice cream truck or even a hair salon. He forcibly drags clients to him and videotapes his beloved father. He is in love with a girl who is still living in her past.
Love played a cruel joke on all these characters. It hurt each of them badly, and he fell from heaven to earth. But they, like fallen angels, heal their broken wings and fly again.
All I want to say is, Wong Kar Wai is a genius, Christopher Doyle is a god.
