    Hong Kong 1960. York (Leslie Cheung) is a vain, amoral sexual predator abandoned in his childhood. In his youth he drifts through a series of casual friendships and affairs with one purpose: to discover the identity of his natural mother. She has long since moved to the Philippines and his foster mother refuses to tell him. As one of York`s lovers courts a policeman (Andy Lau), York travels to the Philippines in search of the truth. Representing a transition for Wong Kar-Wai from his earlier television and film work, Days of Being Wild was filmed by his long time collaborator and celebrated cinematographer Christopher Doyle. This is a haunting and beautiful film with the storytelling dexterity and sumptuous cinematography common to many of Kar-Wai`s films.
