Hong Kong, 1962: Chow Mo-wan (Tony Leung) and Su Li-zhen (Maggie Cheung) move into neighboring 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, this film has been a major stylistic influence on the past two decades of cinema, and is a milestone in Wong’s redoubtable career. 

This 4K digital restoration was undertaken from the 35 mm original camera negative by the Criterion Collection in collaboration with L’Immagine Ritrovata and Jet Tone. It was supervised and approved by Wong Kar Wai.

Reviews

ravishing beyond mortal words.
– Ed Gonzalez, Slant
One of the most passionate, delicately rendered on-screen odes to yearning cinema has ever produced.
– Andrea Thompson, The Spool
In the Mood For Love belongs to Cheung, whose beauty lights up the movie like the polar star lights up a winter sky. Ceung is one of the few modern actresses who understands her own physical beauty as an expressive instrument.
– Kent Jones, Film Comment
