Fa yeung nin wa | 花樣年華

Wong Kar-wai Hong Kong, 2000

MyAmanda's rating of the film In the Mood for Love

An ode to love. Doyle's cinematography is, as always, nothing short of brilliant; frames within frames, a man's face confined in shadows, and the body of a woman in the mirror, the warm colours connecting with the melancholy. Maggie Cheung's and Tony Leung's acting seem to only improve in each other's presence. Understandably Wong Kar Wai's best work.
