The Lovers    (1994)
Tsui Hark delivers a crystal clear mise-en-scene, a simple story but with very complex sub-texts. He masterfully deals with the questions of love, freedom and art. A loving glance is for instance a compulsory thing in romantic stories. Here, it happens at the end of a lengthy travelling sequence, full of shot, reverse shot patterns, until the eyes of both lovers finally meet. This very moment arises from movements but it is also characterised by its immobility. That is what the whole movie is based on. It's a poetry of pictures rarely achieve by any other directors.
