Malt Frisky's rating of the film In the Mood for Love

It starts at such a great pace, a lot of show but don't tell allowing the viewer to work out what's happening and try and get an idea of the timeline but even after the half hour make I get the feeling the writers are trying to pull random ideas out of a hat. The 60s style fashion, classical music, editing are all great with a 'will they or won't they' tone setup, but perhaps it's a film I just don't connect with.
