One of the most beautifully made films that I've ever seen. Stunning cinematography, touching score, some brilliantly written dialogue and a brilliant on screen pairing of Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung Chiu Wai. Has all the elements of a masterpiece and no doubt one the most un-appreciated films that I can think of.One of my favourite films. Absolutely blew me away. Wong Kar Wai is an absolute geni... read more

Such great mise-en-scene, such great acting and the whole movie felt so poignant. It feels like you're standing on the precipice of a great love story, but never really found the courage to jump. When you're done with the movie, you're left with the slight regretful feeling of "what if".

Tragically restrained

A graceful, romantic defeatist wrestles with her circumstance aided by her neighbourly partner in crime.

Engrossing cinematography

Set in Hong Kong, 1962, Chow Mo-Wan is a newspaper editor who moves into a new building with his wife. At approximately the same time, Su Li-zhen, a beautiful secretary and her executive husband also move in to the crowded building. With their spouses often away, Chow and Li-zhen spend most of their time together as friends. They have everything in common from noodle shops to martial arts. Soon, they are shocked to discover that their spouses are having an affair. Hurt and angry, they find comfort in their growing friendship even as they resolve not to be like their unfaithful mates.

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (2000's) (38 movies items)

" Notes: Even though I might be mistaken, this movie can pretty much considered as Wong Kar Wai’s magnum opus. Anyway, I should definitely re-watch it some day. Indeed, I did see this flick in the movie theater when it came out more than 10 years ago and, at the time, it was a massive critical success so I had some rather high expectations. I don’t know, maybe I was too young at the time but, even though I did like it, I can't say I though it was great like everyone seemed to think. I mean, "

"29.11. Rewatch. ****½ - **** Days of Being Wild sai idean ruveta rewatchimaan WKW-filmejä (osittain myös siksi että oletan tuon vaimokkeen pitävän näistä). In the Mood for Love on edelleen erittäin kaunis pätkä etenkin audiovisuaalisesti. Enkä oikeastaan edes tiedä miksi haluan laskea arvosanaa hitusen. "
