Synopsis:
"2046" continues the story of Chow Mo Wan from Wong Kar-Wai's previous film, 'In the Mood for Love', a few years after his ephemeral affair with Maggie Cheung's Su Li-zhen. Set in late-1960's Hong Kong, Chow is now an out of work journalist and pulp fiction writer living in a cheap hotel. Bruised and battered by love, he pursues a playboy lifestyle of zero commitment and one-night stands. He develops a passion for a beautiful call girl (Zhang ZiYi), enjoys a breezy summer with the hotel manager's eldest daughter (Faye Wong), and happens across the path of a professional gambler (Gong Li) who he met in Singapore some years before.
In the meantime, Chow works on a science fiction novel about a mysterious hi-tech train that transports people to the year 2046 to reclaim their lost memories.

2046 better things to do than watch this film - 2046 review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

People who like this sort of thing will find that it is the sort of thing that they like (if they're feeling generous).

The rest of us will, as I did, switch off after 15 minutes.
