Full Trailer for 4K Restoration of Wong Kar Wai's 'In the Mood for Love'
"Feelings can creep up just like that." Block 2 Distribution has released an new official trailer for the 4K restoration and re-release of Wong Kar Wai's beloved romance classic In the Mood for Love. The film originally premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2000, where Tony Leung Chiu Wai won Best Actor. Two neighbors, a woman and a man, form a strong bond after both suspect extramarital activities of their spouses. However, they agree to keep their bond platonic so as not to commit similar wrongs. Described as a "a masterful evocation of romantic longing and fleeting moments. With its aching musical soundtrack and exquisitely abstract cinematography by Christopher Doyle and Mark Lee Ping-bin, this film has secured a place in the cinematic canon, and is a milestone in Wong's redoubtable career." The film also stars Maggie Cheung. It was also released on Criterion Blu-ray recently and will be showing in "virtual cinemas" and a few select theaters later this fall. A must see even if you've already watched it plenty of times before. Enjoy.
