In the Mood for Love is probably the most breathtakingly gorgeous film I’ve ever seen. It’s a sad, achingly beautiful love story that asks us not to identify with the characters so much as to empathize with them. The director, Wong Kar-Wai, is known as cinema’s premier poet of heartache, and he delivers just that. I cannot recommend this film enough.

“He remembered those vanished years as though looking through a dusty window pane. The past is something he can see, but not touch. And everything he sees is blurred and indistinct.”
