After moving into adjacent apartments on the same day, Chow Mo-wan (Tony Leung Chiu-wai) and Su Li-zhen (Maggie Cheung Man-yuk) exchange courteous glances as they pass one another in the hallway. After discovering their spouses’ indiscretions, their brief encounters evolve into a deeply intimate bond. Wong Kar-wai’s lush portrayal of 1962 Hong Kong combines with a powerful, yearning score to melt away time and place as the pair struggle to come to terms with their situation. Cinematographers Christopher Doyle and Mark Lee Ping-bin won the Cannes Technical Grand Prize for their gorgeous and enduringly influential work in this hauntingly beautiful portrait of fleeting unfulfilled love.
