Here’s a rare song and rare video — Faye Wong (王菲) and Tony Leung Chiu-Wai (梁朝偉) in a live 1994 performance in a huge stadium singing “Lau Fei Fei” (流非飛, Flow Not Fly), released in Faye’s Sep 1993 album, Hundred Thousand Whys. It was at about the time Chungking Express was being released, and they were beginning to establish an onscreen chemistry that would play out in other films. In this performance, we can see that Faye is in her element. In CKE, Faye’s first serious film, she felt awkward and out of place, claiming that she could only be herself and didn’t know how to act. As it turns out, this is exactly what Wong Kar-Wai (王家卫), the award-winning director, was looking for. Faye went on to win awards for her performance, and CKE is considered one of the best films in the world. The audio below was ripped from the video.
