Superb Love Story. - In the Mood for Love review by Steve

Spoiler Alert
23/09/2014

Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung play Brief Encouner in this heartbreaking film of a thwarted love affair in 1962 Hong Kong, from which they never recover. Chris Doyle's photography of the city by night; the beautiful music; and the stars, the Bogart and Bergman of our time; and the ending, which is making me sob right now, are overwhelming.

An Oniric Hong Kong - In the Mood for Love review by VA

Spoiler Alert
27/11/2018

A ravishing portrayal of Hong Kong of a city and people who live cheek by jowl yet able to maintain their individuality. An unusual and very moving exploration of two people who are ineluctably attracted to each other but must stay apart.

This is a lovely film, and certainly beautifully filmed. It draws you in, but you definitely have to be in the right mood.
