A Fine Romance Friday: In the Mood for Love

One of my favorite romantic films of the 00s is In the Mood for Love, Wong Kar Wai’s achingly beautiful ode to restraint and repression in 1960s Hong Kong. It stars Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, who were very probably the most attractive people on earth when the film was made. I covet every dress Cheung wears in the film, though I haven’t an ounce of her grace or bearing. It’s slow moving, understated, and seductive as hell.

Also, the music is phenomenal and I may or may not be listening to it right now as I write.
