“The best thing about my profession is that there’s no need to make any decision. Who’s to die… when… where… it’s all been planned by others. I’m a lazy person. I like people to arrange things for me. That’s why I need a partner”.

堕落天使, (Jyutping: Duo luo tian shi)Fallen Angels (1995, Hong Kong)

Directed by: Wong Kar-wai (王家衛)

“Lulu/Mimi is an android in 2046 because she has been deprived of all emotions. Her frequent emotionally distressing relationships with more or less the same person over the years, have become so routine to her, she has become a robotic. Her numbness is expressed though her acceptance of her troublesome boyfriends. Although they cause her distress and heartbreak, she has accepted this as "normal” and in return has found comfort in these feelings and relationships.
