After Watching the Movie "HAPPY TOGETHER(1997)"

I have decided to go travel to American continent, I read a travel essay related with Southern America. In the book, a couple said that rewatching the movie "Happy Together" was one of the things in their wish list. Therefore, the man(he have not smoked for a few months) said that smoking on the End of the World(Ushuaia) is one of his dreams. I started wondering how the movie can touch them.

Happy Together is a 1997 Hong Kong film directed by Wong Kar-wai, starring Leslie Cheung and Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, that depicts a turbulent romance between two men.
Their goal in Argentina is to visit the Iguazu waterfalls.

The movie is the story of men couple that left Hong Kong to see Iguazu waterfalls, and in the film, there are only two of them. I expected that I would see the beauty of Argentina but the movie made me disappoint. I could see only few places for a short time.
For a few minutes from the beginning, the director(Wong Kai-Wai) shows us the scenes in black & white.


As the two arrive into Argentina, they pick a car and drive. Roads were endless and clouds were beautifully spread.

Eventually, Lai finds the strength to visit the waterfalls and return to Hong Kong.


Magnificent of Iguazu Waterfalls, it seems like it could swallow everything in the world.


The end of the film, Chang(Chang Chen) arrived at the light house in the End of the World(Ushuaia).
