Film description

Hong Kong, 1962: Chow Mo-wan and Su Li-zhen move into neighbouring apartments on the same day. Their encounters are formal and polite—until a discovery about their spouses creates an intimate bond between them.

At once delicately mannered and visually extravagant, Wong Kar-wai’s In the Mood for Love is a masterful evocation of romantic longing and fleeting moments. With its aching musical soundtrack and exquisitely abstract cinematography by Christopher Doyle and Mark Lee Ping-bin, this film has been a major stylistic influence on the past decade of cinema, and is a milestone in Wong’s redoubtable career.

Showing as part of The World of Wong Kar-wai

Through July and August, we're excited to be screening three films from the legendary Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai.
