In the Mood for Love ★★★★★

Some absolutely gorgeous cinematography on offer here, the amount of thought put into each shot is staggering. The delicate and understated romance plot is wonderful, with two strong lead characters acted to the highest calibre. It's also incredibly well paced, slow burning up to a fantastic emotional crescendo without the need for subplots or any meandering detours, it just feels so precise in pretty much every aspect.

This film has such a strong emotional core and incredible film-making to match it. Nothing to complain about, it's beautiful and more than lives up to its tremendous reputation.
