Picking up where after In the Mood For Love left off, 2046 is a visually seductive reverie of memory and regret, refracted through a serial womanizer’s experiences with six women. Chow Mo Wan – played by Tony Leung Chiu-wai with the charm of a young Clark Gable – moves from being a gambler to a pulp fiction writer, and 2046 follows him through various liaisons with several beautiful women, played by Ziyi Zhang, Gong Li, Faye Wong, Carina Lau, Dong Jie and Maggie Cheung. Playfully merging past, present, and future, 2046 is at once the number of the hotel room in which the couple of after In the Mood For Love conducted their extra marital encounters, and the date of Hong Kong’s final integration into China.

Reviews

The romantic fatalism is so lush that you're invited to get lost in it.
– Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
Few movies can transport you, even for a moment. 2046 does that and more, rooting you in its multiple realities in a way that feels real and easy to understand.
– Tim Stevens, The Spool
Quite simply an incomparably sublime work of art, a triumph of lyricism over narrative in the cinema, and the most exquisite homage to the beauty of women it has ever been my privilege to witness on the screen.
– Andrew Sarris, Observer
