Breathtakingly gorgeous cinematography creates a languid, seductive atmosphere.
Precise, yet invisible editing creates a lazy rhythm to the scenes that allow every shot to land with maximum impact.
Brilliant colors make every frame drip with eye popping reds, pulse with cool greens, and draw you in with inky shadows.
In the Mood for Love showcases how technical mastery in film can heighten the humanity at a film's center, drawing the viewer in until they feel every emotion. It is truly a modern masterpiece.
