IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE TRAILER FILM WONG KAR WAI… by kirivalse
Wong Kar Wai, 2000
An oddly innocent film about unfaithfulness, the picture truly captures a spirit of loneliness -despite being set in a crowded, almost claustrophobic apartment building in 1960s Hong Kong. A married man and woman (not to each other) each suspect their spouses of infidelity. Their mutual despair brings them into a questionable bond of friendship.
Fixed to a slower tempo, the film allows the viewer to experience the emotions of the characters in real-time. As usual, Wong Kar Wai doesnt have his characters race through a traditional series of events and obstacles. Rather, he has them dwell in one space, lingering and meditating on the same thought/emotion for extended periods of time.
I cannot stress enough how beautifully composed every shot is,
watch the trailer and judge for yourself.
