"★★★★★ –The performances are masterly, and the photography beautiful. A genuinely romantic romance" – Empire
Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung give sublime performances in Wong Kar-wai's haunting visual poem about the fleeting nature of love, a haunting ode to heartbreak stitched together with exquisite cinematography and a gorgeous colour palette of swooning reds and hazily gold-lit Hong Kong alleyways.
Leung and Cheung play neighbours who bond over their spouses' affair, but find this platonic relationship complicated by both their growing desire and the need to obey society's mores.
Dir: Wong Kar-wai
