In The Mood For Love (New Restoration)
About: Hong Kong, 1962: Chow Mo-wan (Tony Leung) and Su Li-zhen (Maggie Cheung) move into neighboring apartments on the same day. Their encounters are formal and polite — until a discovery about their spouses creates an intimate bond between them.
At once delicately mannered and visually extravagant, Wong Kar-wai’s In the Mood for Love is a masterful evocation of romantic longing and fleeting moments. With its aching musical soundtrack and exquisitely abstract cinematography by Christopher Doyle and Mark Lee Ping-bin, this film has been a major stylistic influence on the past decade of cinema and is a milestone in Wong’s redoubtable career.
In the Mood for Love is part of World of Wong Kar-wai, a virtual series of six restored classics from Hong Kong’s soulfully romantic cinematic sensualist, including As Tears Go By, Days of Being Wild, Chungking Express, Fallen Angels, and Happy Together, plus a new director’s cut of The Hand. World of Wong Kar-wai starts streaming December 11 at The Roxie Virtual Cinema and BAMPFA. Presented in partnership with Janus Films.
