In the Mood for Love

In the Mood for Love ★★★★★

This is the first Wong Kar-wai film I've seen. Now I realize what I have been missing.

In the Mood for Love is easily one of the best love stories I've seen. It is a very unique and original film that completely subverts the classic love story. I loved the atmosphere, so sensual and elegant. The score is exquisite, and the cinematography is one of the most delicate and tasteful I have ever seen.

I'm looking forward to more Wong Kar-wai films, will definitely check all the films in the special that Mubi is presenting. And hopefully, I'll eventually dive more into asian cinema in general.
