The unification of direction, cinematography, score and performances yields a palpable tale of love, loneliness, connection and the fleeting nature of time. While "In the Mood for Love" is undoubtedly a love story of sorts, it is such an uncharacteristic yet brilliant one and actors Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung are right up to the task here. A sensual, beautiful, thought-provoking yet often humourous film.
self-restraint doesn't do it for me. if i were her (which simply isn't realistic because i'm smarter and would've never fallen for mistake #1 - getting married) i would ruin my husband's life, get it on with my fellow cheatee neighbor and wrap the movie in 20 minutes. either my ADHD is getting worse or 2017 managed to fucking kill my last functional heart string
IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE talks a lot more with its visual and actor's emotion than its dialogue. Wong Kar-Wai succeed to make an unusual movie about romance. Especially - about adultery. Set in 1960's Hong Kong where to commit such a thing still considered "taboo". IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE has proved something to me. You don't need nudity or sex scenes to make a complex movie about romance. One of my favorite movie!
