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 secured a place in the cinematic canon, and is a milestone in Wong’s redoubtable career.
