Hong Kong, 1962: Chow Mo-Wan (Chungking Express’s TONY LEUNG CHIU-WAI) and Su Li-Zhen (Irma Vep’s MAGGIE CHEUNG MAN-YUK) move into neighbouring 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 soundtrack and exquisitely abstract cinematography by MARK LEE PING-BING and CHRISTOPHER DOYLE, this film has been a major stylistic influence on the past two decades of cinema, and is a milestone in Wong’s redoubtable career
