Directed by Wong Kar-Wai
Wong Kar-Wai’s In the Mood For Love takes us to Hong Kong in 1962. Mrs. Chan and Mr. Chow have just moved next door to each other and soon discover that their spouses are having an affair. They turn to each other for comfort and companionship and a romance develops between them, but they choose not to act as their spouses have. Much of the story is told without dialogue and not everyone will enjoy its slower pace. But it’s a beautifully shot film with amazing music; it’s one of those movies you watch for the experience. And on a personal note, I want to wear all of Mrs. Chan’s amazing dresses.
