in the mood for love

22 and 23 May, 2024

Wong Kar-Wai’s romantic, political and heartbreaking film In the Mood for Love will return for two 4K screenings as part of GFT’s Anniversary Programme, providing a prime example of the kind of world-class cinema that will always have a home – and a devoted audience – at GFT.

Hong Kong, 1962: Chow Mo-Wan (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) and Su Li-Zhen (Maggie Cheung Man Yuk) move into neighbouring apartments on the same day. Their encounters are formal and polite — until a discovery about their spouses creates an intimate bond between them. At once delicately mannered and visually extravagant, Wong Kar Wai’s In the Mood for Love is a masterful evocation of romantic longing and fleeting moments. With its aching soundtrack and exquisitely abstract cinematography by Christopher Doyle and Mark Lee Ping Bing, this film has been a major stylistic influence on the past two decades of cinema, and is a milestone in Wong’s redoubtable career.

In Cantonese, Shanghainese, French and Spanish with English subtitles.
