The story line of this movie is a blurred rhapsody of images depicting the lives of two couples living in adjacent apartments. Su-Lizhen and Chow Mo-wan find their spouses having a relationship, and under these painful circumstances they come closer. While they keep their relationship platonic, to prove that they are a bit different from their unfaithful lovers, there is an undercurrent of longing in both of them.

Written and Directed by Wang Kar Wai ; Language

Chinese ; Photographer Christopher Doyle ; This movie is the second one of an informal trilogy - the other two being Days Of Being Wild (1991) and 2046 (2004). It's good to watch only if you are actually bored with other works.
