Wong Kar-wai reunites with Tony Leung (Chungking Express) and pairs him with Hong Kong acting royalty Maggie Cheung whilst shifting his focus to Hong Kong in the 1960s. Leung and Cheung play neighbours who discover their spouses are having an affair. The two spend an increasing amount of time together but resolve to not join their partners in infidelity. Featuring exquisite costumes, a haunting score and the wonderful cinematography, all adding up to a highly seductive concoction that lives long in the memory.
“Rapturously elegant and deeply sexy in a deliciously restrained way, Wong Kar-wai's In the Mood for Love is one of the most romantic movies I have ever seen” - New York Post
Screening in a new 4K restoration, supervised and approved by Wong Kar Wai.
