Happy Together ★★★★½

The End of the World

The Hong Kong epilogue to this has to be one of the best things Wong Kar-wai ever directed, Fai's relief at being back on his "side of the planet" is palpable after 90 mins spent in claustrophobic and emotionally feverish South America, and it clarifies the themes of the movie as being not just loneliness and romantic dysfunction but homesickness as well, whether you have a real home to go back to or not.
