In the Mood for Love

Wong Kar Wai / HK, FR, CN, 2000 / 98 min.

Mr Chow (Tony Leung) and Mrs Chang (Maggie Cheung) cross paths in Wong Kar Wai’s matchless portrait of a quiet but passionate sensuality. The cinematography, the acting and the music make us experience profound and unspeakable feelings. Chosen by Ivo van Hove.

poster In the Mood for Love (Wong Kar Wai, HK/FR/CN 2000)
The invisible dance is danced by Mr Chow (Tony Leung) and Mrs Chan (Maggie Cheung), who happen to be neighbours in an apartment building in Hong Kong in 1962. When they find out their respective spouses have lovers, the two find comfort in each other’s arms. Passions run high but are kept in check. Eye has re-released six films by Wong Kar Wai in collaboration with Cinéart. With the exception of The Hand, all films are restored in 4K.
