Happy Together

Happy Together ★★★★★

a film titled ‘Happy Together’ surely contradicts itself by being focused on the unraveling of a relationship that was never going to work in the first place. in fact, its irony is exemplified by chang’s words, “You can pretend to look happy, but your voice reveals the truth.” yet still, even when you fight with your loved ones, you find that in love, you’d still do anything for them at the end of the day; be it cooking them a meal from their hometown, caring for them when they aren’t able to do so themselves, or dancing the tango with them in the silence of your apartment’s public kitchen.

wallah this movie hurt me so bad Wong kar-wai why must you torment me so
