Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung star in In the Mood for Love, directed by Wong Kar Wai

In the Mood for Love - Review (2000)

Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung are neighbors in 1960s Hong Kong who are inevitably drawn together as they become convinced that their spouses are having an affair with one another. Helmed by a different director, "In the Mood for Love" could have been an existential period piece about loneliness and forbidden love, but in Wong Kar Wai's capable hands the sexual tension is drawn out with style and subtlety. The visual and aural impressions left by Cheung's short, fitted dresses and Nat King Cole's music cannot fail to lull the viewer into a languorous reverie.
