In the Mood for Love

In the Mood for Love ★★★★★

Remind me never to drop my rating for In the Mood for word what an incredible film. The realisation of the infidelity, the pain of dealing with it and the underlying romance which slowly and subtly builds up until (as Mr Chow describes it) the feelings start to creep up, is absolutely masterfully achieved. Kar-wai's impeccable use of restraint, framing and subdued colors are a joy to behold.

This is truly as good as it gets.
