IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE d. Wong Kar-wai, 2000 (14 FEB 20:15) / Part of ESSENTIAL CINEMA at Close-Up // Also at Olympic Studios (14 FEB 20:30).

“A swooningly cinematic unfolding of romantic desire, Wong Kar-wai’s IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE paints the industrious world of 1960s Hong Kong in luxuriant color, texture, and sound. This paean to love follows two lonely professionals from the same apartment building who circle each other romantically after they begin to suspect their spouses are having an affair. At once restrained and sensual, the film layers detail upon detail to create a ravishing, hypnotic portrait of urban desire.” (Harvard Film Archive)
