Starring legends Tony Leung Chiu-wai and Maggie Cheung, this 2000 romantic drama became an instant classic for its perfect illustration of unfulfilled desire. The film is born from the deep, languid cinematography of Mark Lee Ping Bin and Christopher Doyle combined with the subtle, precise direction of Wong Kar-wai.
In the Mood for Love captures the quiet heartbreak of loving without fulfillment. This is for the people with enduring love unrealized but alive in memory.
The 4K restoration of In the Mood for Love premieres on September 28 at Queens Drive-in in New York City. Tickets are available here.
Do you ever yearn for a love that could've been, ONTD? Do you ever long for a missed connection?
