In the Mood for Love
Wong Kar-Wai
Hongkong, China 2000
98 min

Wong Kar-wai continues to explore themes of solitude and desire with a love story set in 1960’s Hong Kong about two neighbors whose respective spouses are having an affair with each other. Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung play the somber neighbors, living in a claustrophobic apartment house where every gesture and movement conveys a thousand repressed emotions. Wong Kar-wai’s seventh feature film is a wonder to behold; sumptuously designed, gorgeously colored, profoundly sad – this is a movie you can simply drown yourself in. (Anthony Kaufman)

IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE is a film about betrayal, loss, loneliness, and unfulfilled desire but above all it’s a poem of cinema in it’s trance like beauty directed by Wong Kar-wai and realized through the camera of Chris Doyle’s illuminating images ... just breath-taking. (Ed Lachman)
