Chinese Art Film Chungking Express is a must watch for young Pakistanis all over the world who have the talent and the desire to create beautiful, lyrical modern Urdu poetry !!
Enjoy Faye Wong's moving depiction of a young woman in a Hong Kong fast food restaurant who falls in love with a Hong Kong policeman. Faye Wong, a very talented actress gives a riveting performance here !

Links to watching this movie are embedded in my blogpost as well as on the Chinese Art Films page of my web site Dareechah (www.dareechah.com).

I particularly like Jim Jarmusch's American Art Film "Stranger than Paradise" which uses a lightly sketched plot and beautiful performances by the main actors, many times without dialogue, to tell a simple love story !!
