    Chungking Express

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Chungking Express. Two cops—one with an increasing obsession with canned pineapple and one who has begun to talk to household objects—cross paths at an express take-out stand in Hong Kong following messy break-ups with their girlfriends. Both are on a quest to find new love which, if the pixie waitress at the take-out shop is any indication, may be closer than they think. Full of energy and quirkiness, this visually stylized film uses found locations and improvised situations to deliver an unexpectedly charming and humorous narrative which marked it as a classic of 1990s foreign cinema.
