In the Mood for Love
DIRECTOR: WONG KAR-WAI
CAST: TONY CHIU WAI LEUNG, MAGGIE CHEUNG, PING LAM SIU
Wong Kar-wai’s arthouse smash is the very simple tale of two people in early ‘60s Hong Kong, Mr. Chow (Tony Leung Chiu-Wai) and Mrs. Chen (Maggie Cheung), drawn to one another by the discovery that their spouses are getting together on the side. A little story, full of little details, all surrounding a love affair that isn’t really a love affair—but throbbing with huge, aching emotions that it can barely contain. It might just break your heart.
