    Wong Kar Wai makes visually stunning and poetic films. 2046 is a sequel of sorts (WKW calls it an “echo”) to In the Mood for Love that explores similar territory from slightly different perspectives. It’s all about love and loss and there is a melancholy tone and sad beauty to everything that happens. While it may seem to be a bit of a science fiction film, the sf elements are a story that the protagonist is writing which is his…

    can a movie make you mad , sad , and confuse in the same time ?

    Do you know what people did in the old days when they had secrets they didn't want to share? They'd climb a moutain, find a tree, carve a hole in it, whisper the secret into the hole and cover it up with mud. That way, nobody else would ever learn the secret.

    that words is always spoken in this film.
    the story is more…

    Wong Kar-Wai does sci-fi and shows that no matter how many technological advancements we make, people will still manage to feel lonely. We could take an eternal train to our memories, but there's nothing we can do about the expensive ticket price.

    By this point, stunning visuals and excellent scores are just par for the course for Wong Kar-Wai, but I'm still somehow always completely blown away by how much he says by showing so little. It's all the little…

    Ώφου, μου είναι τόσο δύσκολο να παρακολουθώ αυτή τη γλώσσα. Αλλά είχε υπέροχες μουσικές. Κι ας μου ερχόταν στο μυαλό το επεισόδιο με το διευθυντή στους Απαράδεκτους κάθε φορά που άκουγα την Κάστα Ντίβα. Και διάχυτο συναίσθημα. Κι ας μη βρήκα το δεμένο σενάριο και την πλοκή που αναζητούσα απεγνωσμένα. Κατά τα άλλα, όλα καλά, τερμάτισα και το 2048 κατά τη διάρκειά του.

    I must say, I was disappointed by this film. 2046, Wong Kar Wai's follow-up to his masterpiece In the Mood for Love, is sort of a jumbled mess. I felt that Wong got a little overambitious with this film, trying to mash too many plot threads into one story.

    Somehow, Tony Leung's polite, almost timid, character from In the Mood for Love has become a womanizer, and this film follows his relationships with various women, as he writes a science…

    The third and final instalment in Wong Kar-Wai's loose trilogy of films preceded by Days of Being Wild (which I have still yet to see, thankfully still able to follow the movies due to it being a loose trilogy) and In The Mood For Love. I understand there may have been a few characters that appeared in this movie that were previously in Days of Being Wild who's story arcs may have linked, so apologies if I don't completely understand…

    "I once fell in love with someone"

    It's difficult to decide on what to call Wong Kar-wai's romantic trilogy. While the previous two instalments were barely related in story, 2046 almost depends on the audience having already seen In the Mood for Love and Days of Being Wild. Call me a cynic but I also think this is a fitting analogy for describing the success of this film. While the previous two films were beloved due to their originality and…

    Time, love, and everything missed in between.

    “Why can’t it be like it was before…?"

    Director Wong Kar-Wai returns, in this sequel, to the life of Mr. Cho and his many loves following his first spark of genuine connection with Su (In The Mood For Love). A satisfying sequel that manages to not come off as completely lackluster in comparison to its predecessor.

    In 2046 he has created another visually stunning, atmospheric, and melancholy movie about unrequited love and loneliness…

    Whoops, didn't realize until after that this was a sequel to another Wong Kar-wai film. Kind of sucks as it definitely seems it was vital to better understand Tony Leung's character had I seen In the Mood For Love. Though I already get a much better understanding simply now knowing that, but it left me confused during the film, and thus quite a bit detached from certain aspects. Still a very beautiful and deeply crafted film on passionate love affairs with intrigue and beautifully complex emotion.

    It's a reductive analogy, but to me, 2046 is to In the Mood for Love what Fallen Angels is to Chungking Express, with my enjoyment about proportionally the same. Like Fallen Angels, 2046 is very much in the shadow of its predecessor, and although it works beautifully in snatches, it just doesn't achieve as much.

    Wong is, for me, an extremely exciting filmmaker, and both Chungking and In the Mood are among my favorite films of all time. But it's…
