In the Mood For Love

Screen Classics is back for autumn with a beautiful new restoration of Wong Kar-Wai’s breathtaking melodrama In the Mood For Love.

 

In 1962, journalist Chow Mo-Wan (Tony Leung Chiu-Wai) and his wife move into a Hong Kong apartment, but Chow’s spouse is often away on business. Before long, the lonely Chow makes the acquaintance of the alluring Su Li-Zhen (Maggie Cheung Man-Yuk), whose own significant other also seems preoccupied with work. As the two friends realize their respective partners are cheating on them, they begin to fall for one another; however, neither wants to stoop to the level of the unfaithful spouses.

 

“The arthouse auteur and 1990s cinema icon Wong Kar-Wai peaked with this mesmerising tale of love never realised — it’s up there with Brief Encounter and Roman Holiday as the best of the genre.” – Kevin Maher, The Times
