Before I analyze the film Chungking Express, I would like to briefly introduce its director—Wang Kar-Wai, a great master who specialized in describing protagonists’ characteristics by details and the whole environment. Since he grows up in Hong Kong, a former British colony involving Chinese culture and western culture, he has lots of thinking on this metropolis and the people living there. Thus he directs bunch of films such like Chungking Express, telling the love stories happened in Hong Kong via protagonists’ characteristics and background music. In this movie, there are two independent and interconnected love stories as well as four protagonists: cop 233, A-Fei, cop 663, and female killer. Wang Kar-Wai tells us that urban people are lonely since their life is so simple: work and rest; however, they are full of warmth and tender deep inside their hearts. They are always seeking for pure love in this city—they are all parts of Chungking Express, the emotional signature of Hong Kong.
To illustrate, I will analyze this movie from three scenes to reveal that urban people desire love and care deep inside their hearts even though they are living in such a busy and cold city. The first scene, whose protagonists the female killer and cop 233, He-Zhiwu are in the film impressed me a lot. In the beginning, the killer (Actor: Lin Qingxia) hired several Indians to transport the drug out of Hong Kong. However, those Indians disappeared with the drug. If she cannot find them until May…
Growing up dogs have always been around me, and we’ve had many dogs, and a few cats, over the years. Here 's the stories of a few.

Jojoba- Simmondsia Chinensis
