Hong Kong 2000


Hong Kong bathed in the golden light of the 1960s. Chow Mo-wan and Su Li-zhen live in neighboring rented apartments. A perfectly groomed journalist and an elegant secretary in perfectly tailored dresses exchange perfunctory pleasantries on the stairs. Until they discover that their spouses have had an affair. Tacit communication will become the basis of a relationship that should not have happened in this place and at that time. One of the most beautiful pieces in the history of cinema, masterfully crafted from shadows, mirror reflections, stealthily captured gestures and glances.

The film is gorgeous, dripping with texture and sensuality and, well, mood.

Wong Kar Wai’s latest masterpiece is an erotic and visually stunning meditation on the confines of love.

Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine

Recommended to anyone who’s ever felt the fear and lure of falling in love.
