Film notes

IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE • Hong Kong • 2000
PG | 98′ | Drama • Romance
Directed by Kar-Wai Wong (as Kar Wai Wong)

In the Mood for Love is written, produced and directed by Wong Kar-wai, starring Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung. It is frequently listed as one of the greatest films of Asia.

The film’s original Chinese title, meaning “the age of blossoms” or “the flowery years” – Chinese metaphor for the fleeting time of youth, beauty and love – derives from a song of the same name by Zhou Xuan from a 1946 film. The English title derives from the song, “I’m in the Mood for Love”. Wong had planned to name the film Secrets, until listening to the song late in post-production.

In 2016, BBC named In The Mood For Love best film of the century. It has been selected as the Best Asian Movie in history by CNN.com.

In the Mood for Love premiered on 20 May 2000, at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival, where it was nominated for the Palme d’Or and Tony Leung was awarded Best Actor. The movie forms the second part of an informal trilogy: The first part was Days of Being Wild (released in 1990) and the last part was 2046 (released in 2004). [Wikipedia]
