Chungking Express (重庆森林) [literally “Chungking Forest”] directed by Wong Kar-wai
Music: The Mamas & the Papas – California Dreamin’

Lyrics:
“All the leaves are brown (all the leaves are brown)
And the sky is grey (and the sky is grey)
I’ve been for a walk (I’ve been for a walk)
On a winter’s day (on a winter’s day)
I’d be safe and warm (I’d be safe and warm)
If I was in L.A. (if I was in L.A.)

California dreamin’ (California dreamin’)
On such a winter’s day

Stopped into a church
I passed along the way
Well, I got down on my knees (got down on my knees)
And I pretend to pray (I pretend to pray)
You know the preacher like the cold (preacher like the cold)
He knows I’m gonna stay (knows I’m gonna stay)

California dreamin’ (California dreamin’)
On such a winter’s day

All the leaves are brown (all the leaves are brown)
And the sky is grey (and the sky is grey)
I’ve been for a walk (I’ve been for a walk)
On a winter’s day (on a winter’s day)
If I didn’t tell her (if I didn’t tell her)
I could leave today (I could leave today)

California dreamin’ (California dreamin’)
On such a winter’s day (California dreamin’)
On such a winter’s day (California dreamin’)
On such a winter’s day”

  1. I come back here because they use as songtrack in Stranger Things Season 4 episode 1. On my way to watch Chaungking Express for 99 times.

  2. I remember after I watched this movie, i just couldn't get enough of it and kept searching and searching for similar movies. Before Sunrise, Midnight in Paris, The scent of Green papaya, Fallen Angels…I watched it all in pursuit of the same whimsical feel of this movie . And while all of them were extremely enjoyable and aesthetically pleasing, I never found in them the feeling this movie gave me. And that's when I realised that there simply isn't any movie out there that has the exact same whimsical, hopeful, nostalgic vibe this movie brings. Chungking Express is a classic for that reason, it can't be replicated and there's no movie quite like this. Wong karwai's best work truly.

  3. This film does this song so much justice just dancing around room to this song is a vibe

  4. Amo esta película, amo a la actriz, amo su actuación y la personalidad del personaje, más doblada en español, aunque quisiera verla subtitulada. Pero aún con eso, no entiendo porqué tiene esa intro de 40 minutos xD se pudo haber puesto más tomas de Faye <3

  5. Una película muy particular, distinta al resto dentro de su género, al principio me costó conectar pero después se convierte en una gran obra cruda y realista que relata lo que puede significar la soledad y el amor, con sus distintas caras, buenas y malas, que no cualquier película te lo puede mostrar así.

  6. Although the trespassing part was creepy, but in a metaphorical sense it was cute. She entered into his space(heart/mind) unknowingly and changed everything, and he slowly accepted it.

  7. What are the odds another Pakistani guy like me would be listening to this. Let's see how different is our California
