A disillusioned Yiu-Fai starts working at a tango bar to save up for his trip home. When a beaten and bruised Po-Wing reappears, Yiu-Fai is empathetic but is unable to enter a more intimate relationship. After all, Po-Wing is not ready to settle down. Yiu-Fai now works in a Chinese restaurant and meets the youthful Chang from Taiwan. Yiu-Fai's life takes on a new spin, while Po-Wing's life shatters continually in contrast.

    WKW blows me away time and time again no matter how many repeat viewings of any of his given films. A masterpiece. How to show the experience of love and longing through cinematic art.

    Well, you're partly right. Wong was able to use other pieces by Zappa in the film, but the version of "Happy Together" in the film is by Danny Chung, not the Turtles. And the Turtles recorded the song, but they didn't write it, so it's not really their creation.
  • OldDunc 2013-04-09 03:04:15
    It is. Very. Totally.

    No, the sixties version is by the Turtles. But Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman left the Turtles to perform with Zappa and the Mothers of Invention around 70, and I think they recorded a version of the song in that context.

    Frank Zappa have other themes in the movie, so what you're saying is not true. Also, the last "Happy Together" version of the movie is a popular concert of The Turtles, who are the real creators of the song, no Frank Zappa.
