|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Fallen Angels|
|FALLEN ANGELS is a movie written and directed by Wong Kar Wai in 1995. Nine nominations (it won three) for the 1996 Hong-Kong Film Awards.
Leon Lai, an assassin describing himself as lazy, works with a partner, Michelle Reis, whose role is to carefully prepare Lai's hits. Both criminals communicate only by phone or faxes and one understands soon that Michelle is in love with her partner. The third important character of the picture is a mute guy who forces people to buy his goods and who spends a lot of time filming his father.
FALLEN ANGELS is a confusing movie that could offer to the audience the possibility to discover Wong Kar-Wai's unique style and also Hong-Kong filmed in a very unusual manner.
