This is one of the most visually striking films I've seen in a long time.

My first from Wong Kar Wai. In the Mood For Love is beautifully shot, brilliantly acted, and has amazing music. What holds it back from greatness is the ending though. It just felt unsatisfying and offered little in terms of resolution. Still very good.

Some of the best love stories ever told are about forbidden love. When a film makes you want the two lead characters to be together even though there are several factors preventing that from happening like marriage, dating someone else, their job ("but I'm a senator") or religion, it has truly succeeded in creating a beautiful love story. I have some mixed feelings about the artsy ending. But otherwise, this is definitely up there on my imaginary list of the best romance films I've ever seen.
