In 1962, journalist Chow Mo-wan and his wife move into a Hong Kong apartment, but Chow's spouse is often away on business. Before long, the lonely Chow makes the acquaintance of the alluring Su Li-zhen, whose own significant other also seems preoccupied with work. As the two friends realize their respective partners are cheating on them, they begin to fall for one another; however, neither wants to stoop to the level of the unfaithful spouses.

'In the Mood for Love is probably the most breathtakingly gorgeous film of [2000], dizzy with a nose-against-the-glass romantic spirit that has been missing from the cinema forever' - Elvis Mitchell, New York Times
