Fa yeung nin wa | 花樣年華

Wong Kar-wai Hong Kong, 2000

F/K's rating of the film In the Mood for Love

A simple but eloquent film, melancholic but very sweet at the same time. The set design, art direction and costumes are gorgeous and warm, the cinematography is gorgeous and the direction is just perfect really. The music is and the handpicked songs perfectly fit the film. What's even better about it is the fact how it handles it's subject matter in such style and grace. Poetic cinema at it's finest.
