In the Mood for Love - World of Wong Kar Wai - 4K restoration

“Uncommonly lavish filmmaking, with Wong’s intoxicating and hypnotic application of form, the stunningly nuanced and sad performances, and the seductiveness of the story leaving us in a state of rapture…. Feels like an extravagant valentine from Wong.” — Deep Focus Review

Hong Kong, 1962: Chow Mo-wan (Tony Leung Chiu-wai) and Su Li-zhen (Maggie Cheung Man-yuk) move into neighboring 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.


“In Kar Wai’s world, mise-en-scene conveys as much information as dialogue, and characters’ clothing choices reveal sides of their personality they never express verbally… 20 years on, IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE remains the ultimate fashion romance.” —Janelle Okwodu, Vogue

“IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE's glory is its universality…. It's a film about, yes, love; but also betrayal, loss, missed opportunities, memory, the brutality of time's passage, loneliness.” —Peter Walker, Guardian
