Food in Fiction: Chungking Express

Chungking Express (1994)
written and directed by Wong Kar Wai

The film consists of two stories about two lovelorn Hong Kong cops. In the second, which begins with the scene above, a flight attendant leaves a break-up note and her set of keys for Cop 633 (Tony Leung) at a take-out restaurant he frequents. The new take-out waitress (Faye Wong) falls for him and secretly sneaks into his apartment while he walks his beat.
