The text analyses a Hongkong based director Wong Kar-wai’s film Days of Being Wild from two points of view: its literary and philosophical inspirations. The first one focuses on Argentinian Manuel Puig’s novel Heartbreak Tango. The second one examines the philosophical structure of the main character. The thesis of the article is that the director links different cultures in his film: Asian, non-American and European in a surprising fictional-symbolic strategy. Firstly, he uses a literary inspiration to formulate the story settled in the Asian context. Secondly, the conclusions resulting from it evoke the philosophical tradition of the European existentialism. Wong has carried out each of the references in a superb manner.
