“In The Mood for Love casts a dreamy and melancholic spell that remains unbroken long after the closing credits have rolled.” – Scott Tobias, AV Club
Hong Kong, 1962: Chow Mo-wan (Tony Leung Chiu-wai) and Su Li-zhen (Maggie Cheung Man-yuk) move into neighboring apartments on the same day. Their encounters are formal and polite—until a discovery about their spouses creates an intimate bond between them. At once delicately mannered and visually extravagant, Wong Kar Wai’s In the Mood for Love is a masterful evocation of romantic longing and fleeting moments. With its aching musical soundtrack and exquisitely abstract cinematography by Christopher Doyle and Mark Lee Ping-bin, this film has been a major stylistic influence on the past decade of cinema, and is a milestone in Wong’s redoubtable career. (Dir. by Wong Kar Wai, 2000, Hong Kong, in Cantonese/Shanghainese/French/Spanish with English subtitles, 98 mins., Rated PG)
