In the Mood for Love

In the Mood for Love ★★★★★

In the Mood for Love explores Su and Chow investigating love and infidelity while trying to remain platonic, trying to not get caught up with each other as their spouses did. Yet, the pain of their discovery paired with the loneliness of their apartment lives leads them to develop something stronger than friendship. They act through the scenes of their partners’ infidelity, learning and fictionalizing the dialogue and motions that occurred. However, unknown to them at first, each of these scenes plays a part in their own relationship – the tender moments in the backs of cabs, silently sitting across the booth in a restaurant, in close quarters hiding in a room so as not to be found out. Each of these moments are exactly as a couple would do, and despite them being purely meant to discover the relationship of another, they themselves begin to fall in love.
