Kar-wai Wong Profile, by Thom Bennett

Official Site

Wong Kar-Wai's films have consistently explored the quirks and fragility of human nature as few filmmakers have ever been able to. While known mostly for his brash, rule breaking cinematic style, his films and characters consistently possess great insight into the small, seemingly insignificant moments that can change lives.

"In the Mood For Love" is the story of a young man and woman, both involved in romantic relationships, who befriend one another as both of their significant others are away on business quite often. Their friendship continues to flourish until it is discovered that their respective partners are having an affair with one another.
