Wong Kar Wai / HK, 2004 / 129 min.

Writer Chow (Tony Leung), the protagonist of In the Mood for Love, works on a science fiction novel in a Hong Kong hotel. Chow tries to forget the love of his life with one affair after the other.

Poster 2046

Chow’s numerous failed affairs with women are the stuff of inspiration for the futuristic love story he is working on. Romantic yearning for the great love he once knew is alternated with dizzying jumps in time and a science fiction twist.
