YesAsia Editorial Description

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!

Product Information

왕가위 감독 Collection - 중경삼림 (블루레이) (한국판)

*Screen Format: 1.78: 1080P High Definition
*Sound Mix: 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio
*Extras: 예고편

*Director: 왕가위

* 왕가위 감독 컬렉션 블루레이 출시(총 6편 출시예정)
- <화양연화>,<중경삼림>,<타락천사>,<해피투게더>,<2046>,<동사서독 리덕스> 왕가위 감독작품 전격 블루레이 출시

 왕가위 감독 컬렉션 블루레이 두번째 : “중경삼림”
1. <중경삼림>과 <타락천사>는 왕가위를 대중적 위치에 자리매김한 작품이며, 광고를 포함한 대중매체들은 두 영화를 두루 차용하기도 했다.
2. 국내 첫 소개되어 왕가위 신드롬을 일으켰던 그 작품!
- California Dreaming’, ‘몽중인’ 등 영화음악 리퀘스트 1순위 작품
3. 최고의 초호화 캐스팅 <양조위>,<임청하>,<금성무>,<왕페이>
4. 대본 없이 작업하기를 좋아하는 왕가위의 특징은 그의 영화에 약간 균형을 잃은 듯한 멋진 리듬감을 부여한다. 그로부터 종종 아름답고 감동적일 뿐 아니라 도전적인 결과가 나온다는 사실은 그가 함께 작업할 동료들을 선택하는 안목과 그들에 대한 신뢰를 증명해준다. 「중경삼림」은 두 개의 특이한 (그리고 서로 거의 무관한) 러브스토리를 담고 있는데, 모두 외로운 경찰이 주인공이고 홍콩의 혼잡한 도심을 배경으로 한다. 첫 이야기에서 금성무가 분한 젊은 형사는 사다 놓은 파인애플 통조림들의 유통기한이 끝나기 전에 새 여자친구를 만들기로 결심한다. 그리고 임청하를 만나고는 그럴 수 있을 거라 생각한다. 그는 모르는 사실이지만 임청하는 사라진 물건을 찾고 있는 마약거래상이다. 그러다 감독은 갑자기 말없는 경찰 양조위의 이야기로 관심을 돌린다. 그가 자주 들르는 음식점의 점원인 왕비는 그에게 반하고, 그의 아파트에 몰래 들어가 청소를 하고 집안을 꾸미면서 그의 세계 속에서 그의 정기를 흡수하는 짧고 은밀한 시간을 누리는 것으로 그에 대한 애정을 표현한다. 두 이야기는 우스우면서도 기묘한 호소력을 지닌다. 그러나 이 영화의 진짜 스타는 배우들도 스토리도 아니고 그것이 제시되는 방식이다. 왕가위는 자주 함께 작업하는 재능 있는 촬영감독 크리스토퍼 도일과 함께, 다른 사람들처럼 대본에 기교를 부리는 대신 필름과 노출과 속도의 기교를 통해 홍콩을 오렌지색 네온 빛의 덩어리와 파편화되고 왜곡된 이미지들의 조합으로 바꾸어놓았다. 여기에 노래—「중경삼림」에서는 ‘마마스 앤 파파스’의 ‘California Dreaming’—의 힘에 대한 그의 예리한 감각도 한몫을 한다. 이로써 왕가위는 홍콩의 신세대 감독들 가운데 팝 문화에 가장 정통해 있고 상식을 깨는 감독으로 자리잡았다. 그의 다른 영화 중에는 감정적 반향을 강조한 것도 있지만 「중경삼림」은 순전히 순수함과 열광과 영화적 자유만으로 만들어진 영화다. 현대 홍콩의 핵심에 자리한 지저분함과 혼란에 생동감을 부여한, 내용에 대한 스타일의 충격적인 승리다
5. 최고의 명대사 "사랑에도 유통기한이 있다면... 너와의 사랑은 만년쯤으로 하고 싶다."



● Synopsis
이들만의 사랑을 잊는 방법, 그리고 사랑을 찾는 방법! 사랑에 유효기간이 있다면… 사랑을 지울 수 있다면…
경찰 223(금성무 분)은 시간만 되면 패스트푸드점에서 헤어진 옛 애인을 기다린다. 자신의 생일이자 옛 애인과 헤어진 지 딱 한 달이 되는 5월 1일이 유통기한인 파인애플 통조림을 사 모으던 그는 한달 동안 그녀에게서 연락이 오지 않으면 그녀를 잊기로 마음먹는다. 같은 시간, 노랑머리 마약밀매 중계자(임청하 분)는 자신을 배신한 마약 중개인을 제거한 뒤 술집을 찾고 그곳에서 경찰 223은 술집으로 처음 들어오는 여자를 사랑하겠노라 마음 먹는데… 한편 경찰 663(양조위 분)는 패스트푸드점에서 언제나처럼 똑같은 샐러드를 고른다. 패스트푸드점에서 일하는 점원 페이(왕정문 분)는 그런 경찰 663을 남몰래 좋아하고 있다. 어느 날, 경찰 663의 애인이 이별의 편지와 함께 경찰 663의 아파트 열쇠를 페이의 가게에게 맡긴다. 그 후 페이는 경찰 663이 집을 비운 사이 그 집에 남아있는 그녀의 흔적을 하나 둘 지워나며 새롭게 꾸민다. 변화를 쉽게 알아차리지 못하던 경찰 663은 어느 날 자신의 집이 변해가는 것을 깨닫게 되고…

A Timeless Movie Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Unlike the other Wong Kar Wai's movies, famed for their slow and convoluted plots, Chungking Express is refreshingly simple, which makes the movie watchable at any time of the day. Yet it does not lose any of the raw urban emotions that the characters felt and experienced. For some reason, I had only watched the second story with Tony Leung and Faye Wong previously - which had me humming California Dreaming for days. I saw the complete movie for the first time today, and totally get the haplessness felt by a very young Takeshi Kaneshiro. One can't really tell that the movie is 18 years old but the pager and the public phone did bring back feelings of nostalgia.

modern relationships Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
If you enjoy the Pulp Fiction method of presentation, you can definately see how/where Quentin Tarintino was influenced by this film & you'll enjoy the quirky modern love/relationship story as well. The nectar is in the dialogue or the often on-going monologue of its equally quirky characters. You basically want to cheer them on the whole time regardless of or perhaps because of familiarity with their quirkiness. This edition includes a brief introducation with Tarentino.

Best Version Yet? Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Being that Chungking Express is my favorite film of all time, I got have the best Dvd Version. I own four other Dvd Releases and this Korean version is one of the best. The DTS sound is incredible, just about ever sound is picked up, example when California Dreamin is playing it actually sounds like it's coming from the radio and doesn't drown out everything else. The video is very sharp with minimal video artfacts (beats all other versions in the sharpness department). It does appear to be darker than the AE PAL version but does look natural and the movie runs uncut, unlike the PAL version. The only negatives I can say about this version is it appears to be cropped like R1 version and a little darker, but with the DTS sound, uncut, and a huge improvement in the video sharpness, I would recommend this Korean Version to anyone you loves Chungking Express or is in need of an upgrade from the crappy Mirmaxe Version.

Great Movie! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The first time I watched it, which was many many years ago, I didn't quite get the film. But after watching it again, I really enjoyed it. It has 2 great stories in one and they're both distinct and very cool. Please restock it in its original Cantonese version. Thanks!

Classic Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Watched it once, no big deal. Watched a second time, and I can't get it out of my head. Memorable, hypnotic and captivating. ChungKing Express is a quick acting and potent dose of Hong Kong spirit. Need I say more?
