In the Mood for Love

Peter Bradshaw: It is a world of crumbling plaster, perspiring wallpaper, of tacky formica restaurant booths, shabby-genteel apartments framed in a shot which can be suddenly bisected by the tatty curtain, flapping in an urban breeze which mirrors the sirocco of suppressed longing. This is the dark and lonely "mood" for love that Wong Kar-wai evokes
