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.

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Os (50 movies items)

"Wong Kar-Wai’s tender, sensual romance “In The Mood For Love” is often called one of the very best films of the 2000s: indeed, it was ranked the highest of any film from that decade in the most recent Sight & Sound poll. But it proved a little too artsy for the Academy, who gave the Best Foreign Language Film prize that year to “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon,” leaving Wong’s film without a single nomination (indeed, none of his films got attention from the Oscars until two nomination"
