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

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.
