In the Mood for Love (PG)

Presented as part of our World of Wong Kar-wai season. Two neighbours form a strong bond after both suspect their spouses of affairs.

In 1962, journalist Chow Mo-wan (Tony Leung) and his wife move into a Hong Kong apartment, but Chow’s spouse is often away on business. Before long, the lonely Chow makes the acquaintance of the alluring Su Li-zhen (Maggie Cheung), whose own significant other also seems preoccupied with work. As the two friends realise their respective partners are cheating on them, they begin to fall for one another; however, neither wants to stoop to the level of the unfaithful spouses...
