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.

" If David Lynch ever would skip his surreal landscapes, go soft and make Asian romantic dramas about forbidden love it would probably look like this with it's deep colored photography and use of music that grabs your ear. An instant art masterpiece."

Nick's Top 100 Films (100 movies items)

""Wong imbues everything the West regards as film cliché with a new glamour and fervor; but whereas in the cinema of John Woo and Tsui Hark this romanticism lurks behind an operatic violence, in Wong’s films love is never merely a distraction or a motivation or a fleeting promise of redemption but the dominating conflict." - Steve Erickson"
