Days of Being Wild (A Fei jingjyuhn) is a 1990 Hong Kong film directed by Wong Kar-wai. The film stars some of the best-known actors and actresses in Hong Kong, including Leslie Cheung, Maggie Cheung, Andy Lau, Carina Lau, Jacky Cheung and Tony Leung Chiu Wai. Days of Being Wild also marks the first collaboration between Wong and cinematographer Christopher Doyle, with whom he has since made eight films. The movie forms the first part of an informal trilogy, together with In the Mood for Love (released in 2000) and 2046 (released in 2004).


  • I've heard that there's a kind of bird without legs that can only fly and fly, and sleep in the wind when it is tired. The bird only lands once in its life... that's when it dies.
  • I used to think there was a kind of bird that, once born, would keep flying until death. The fact is that the bird hasn't gone anywhere. It was dead from the beginning.

  • I always thought one minute flies by. But sometimes it really lingers on. Once, a person pointed at his watch and said to me, that because of that minute, he'd always remember me. It was so charming listening to that. But now I look at my watch and tell myself that I have to forget this man starting this very minute.


  • Don't compare yourself with others, I didn't know I was poor before, 'till I found out I didn't have a new uniform every year, but all my classmates had.


Yuddy: What day's today?
Su Li-zhen: 16th.
Yuddy: 16th... April the 16th. At one minute before 3pm on April the 16th, 1960, you're together with me. Because of you, I'll remember that one minute. From now on, we're friends for one minute. This is a fact, you can't deny. It's done.

Yuddy: Hey, have you heard of a kind of bird...
Tide: The kind without legs, right? This kind of nonsense can only fool the girls!

Leung Fung-ying: When did I say I'd come home with you?
Yuddy: You never said you wouldn't.
