Days of Being Wild

Three decades ago, Days of Being Wild, the breakthrough film of cinema legend Wong Kar Wai, debuted. During the time, the film did not meet the expectations of critics and viewers accustomed to big budget genre films. Now revered as a classic, its cast includes a lineup of Hong Kong’s biggest stars in the prime of their youths and at the start of their illustrious careers: Leslie Cheung, Andy Lau, Maggie Cheung, Carina Lau, Jacky Cheung, and Tony Leung.

Following Wong’s debut As Tears Go By, Days of Being Wild features the formal flourishes, poetic touches, and subtle cinematic moods that would become the filmmaker’s signature. Through tender portrayals of a group of wayward friends and lovers, Days of Being Wild meditates on themes of romance, fate, memory, and time within a nostalgic urban landscape.

M+ presents the latest remastered 4K version of the film completed in 2020.

The screening on 12 June will be followed by a post-screening talk in Cantonese and English with L’immagine Ritrovata Asia’s film restoration technician Kay Ng.

M+ Cinema Screening Redemption Vouchers and Cinema Screening Vouchers are not applicable for this screening.
