    Happy Together is a 1997 Hong Kong romance film directed by Wong Kar-wai, starring Leslie Cheung and Tony Leung Chiu-wai, that depicts a turbulent romance between two men. The English title is inspired by The Turtles’ 1967 song, which is covered by Danny Chung on the film’s soundtrack; the Chinese title (previously used for Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blowup) is an idiomatic expression suggesting “the exposure of something intimate.”

    The film received positive reviews from several film festivals, including a win for Best Director at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival.
