Winner of the Best Director Prize at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, Wong Kar-Wai's HAPPY TOGETHER is a cinematic balancing act, a stunning display of filmmaking style and a touching love story evenly mixed into one film. Hong Kong and world cinema have never seen anything quite like it. Tony Leung and Leslie Cheung, two of Hong Kong's biggest stars, play a pair of gay lovers living out the waning days of their relationship as expatriates in Buenos Aires. Together with Australian Christopher Doyle, Kar-Wai's longtime cinematographer, the director discovers a city rich with diverse cultural influences. HAPPY TOGETHER reveals a corner of the world alive with intimate colors and an astonishing array of sounds. Even more striking, though, is the way that such an international collaboration begins to life a romance that is both realistic and universal. Ho and Lai are characters who are instantly identifiable, playing the roles and experiencing the dynamics that all couples go through in the course of a relationship. Lusty tango bars, the salsa music of the La Boca sidewalks and the hypnotic vision of the nearby Igauzu Falls gives further dimension to the tensions growing between the two lovers.

Very Well done! The Photography, the Acting, the choice of Music, the Script, all fit together into a Whole!
Good but slow - - -
It was a good movie. I did not like it.
This movie had a few twists and turns. I kept wondering what was going to happen next. It was slightly slow throughout the movie, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed it.
A moving drama about the true meaning of LOVE between soulmates.
it was nice, and sad at the some time, but I love foreign films. They explore more emotions then the american films. I especially love the "LGBT" films. I do hope to see more foreign films from you'll.
It was ok but kind of sad as to why they didnt get along.
