Hong Kong, 1962. Mrs Chan (Maggie Cheung) and her husband rent a room in the same building as Chow Mo-Wan (Tony Leung) and his wife. After a while, and with their partners seemingly always away on business, Mr Chow and Mrs Chan become friends, their hesitant, considerate relationship making their nights alone more bearable. But why do their spouses spend so much time away? And why is it always at the same time? Directed by Wong Kar-Wai ('Chungking Express'), this finely detailed, beautifully photographed love story was widely acclaimed by critics all over the world.

The sequel 2046 is worth of being a story in its own right, but for the references to In The Mood...
If you're looking for a story which makes you sit up and pay attention, as you will miss the sometimes cryptic clues they give the other as to their suspicions..
Check out Windstruck if you want a bit of comedy thrown in with romance.
The cinematography is breathtaking and is Christopher Doyle's crowning achievement, enhancing the relationship between the two leads with colour and imagery that adds to the story. The performance by the two leads is excellent and all of the other departments such as set design, costumes and music only add to the cocktail.
I urge one and all to see this timeless film and to give oneself to it unreservedly. You will not regret it. I watch this film once every year and it feels just right that I do.
As a companion to this film also try 'Monsoon Wedding' which, in my opinion, is a counterpart and a joyous slice of life in modern India despite one element within that is anything but. In fact, watch both in one long evening of cinema at home with your closest this summer!
If you like this film, get a copy of both the 2 disc UK edition as well as the Criterion Region 1 edition from the USA as both have different extras which all make the experience even more satisfying. The Criterion is more expensive but ultimately worth it as the extras are substantial, and the UK edition is inexpensive and great value for money.
I would recommend this film to anyone interested in the human condition, it is an absorbing, wonderlful film.
