Description

"Casts a dreamy and melancholic spell that remains unbroken long after the closing credits have rolled." —AV Club

"Gorgeous, dripping with texture and sensuality and, well, mood." —AP

"Every charged frame of the film pulses with the central contradiction between repression and emotional abandon; the formalism and sensuality are inextricable." —Time Out

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.
