Hong Kong/China | 2000 | Wong Kar-wai Voted the best film of the first decade of this century by film writers for Time Out London, Wong Kar-wai’s exquisite mood piece is suffused with romantic melancholy. In 1962 Hong Kong, a lonely married man (Tony Leung Chiu-wai) and a lonely married woman (Maggie Cheung), both living in the same crowded apartment building, begin a chaste affair after deducing that their oft-absent spouses are lovers. This gorgeous, stylish, and spellbinding love story is probably Wong’s most celebrated work. New 4K restoration! Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. 98 min.
