While Ricky invites disaster with reckless ambition, Bobby just wants a happier, legitimate future for his stripper girlfriend and her neglected young daughter

In his first hypnotic backward glance at Hong Kong in 1960, Wong Kar Wai creates a post-modern La Ronde set in a fluorescent labyrinth of cool desperation and unfulfilled need. Against the echoing rhythms of period rumbas, Days of being wild tracks a half dozen characters through their individual searches for intimate connection. Collaborating for the first time with cinematographer Christopher Doyle, Wong Kar Wai's restless visual imagination decorates this dreamlike fable with characteristic muted extravagance. Days of being wild offers an intoxicating cocktail of lush nostalgia and bitter alienation equaled only by Wong Kar Wai's subsequent films. Star crossed Asian film icon Leslie Cheung (Farewell my concubine, Happy together) plays Luddy, a devastatingly handsome Hong Kong lothario who seduces and forsakes women without compunction. Abandoned at birth, Luddy's self-destructive search for love is really a Quixotic quest for a feeling of permanence and a sense of identity. When Luddy beguiles lovely shop girl Su Lizen, he unknowingly sets in motion a sequence of broken hearts and unremembered promises that climaxes in naked obsession, inadvertent self-discovery and shocking violence. In possibly her most engaging performance, Maggie Cheung (In the mood for love, As tears go by) invests Su Lizen with ethereal beauty and street level vulnerability. With a supporting cast of Hong Kong cinema notables, including Andy Lau (Fulltime killer, As tears go by) as Su's policeman confessor, and frequent Wong collaborator Tony Leung (In the mood for love, Happy together), Days of being wild's visionary audacity and deep romantic conviction sustains and rewards multiple viewings

A greasy Hong Kong fast-food joint serves as the focal point for two off-kilter love stories about two cops, both told from multiple perspectives and exploring the fragility of human connections. Detective 223, dumped by his girlfriend, buys a can of pineapple every day which he will eat in a year, if she hasn't changed her mind and returned to him. Meanwhile, he falls in love with a bewigged drug smuggler. Detective 663, also dumped, falls for nutty counter girl Faye. Possibly unhinged by her habit of constantly listening to an ear-shattering rendition of "California Dreamin'," Faye falls for him and begins sneaking into his apartment, rearranging the furniture, cleaning the place up and further weakening his already-shaky grasp on reality

The particular aesthetics of Hong Kong cinema has had a profound influence on the movie industry at large. Chris Doyle, the Australian who made his home in HK, has worked with John Woo and Wong Kar Wai and became "the" director of photography of the great new-style Asian movies during the last 20 years. Some say he is crazy. Others say he's unpredictable ... with a penchant for the bottle. During a whole year, we followed his equally unpredictable schedule, from Hong Kong to Cannes, from Bangkok to Hollywood, from London to NY Chinatown
