In the Mood for Love (2000)
Reviewed by: MrBooth on 2001-05-27
Summary: Disappointed, but maybe my expectations were wrong
IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE - Personally I found it rather boring, and a little bit hollow. It might just be that I was expecting something else when I went into the theatre though - something more like the in-your-face splendour of WKW's past works. The characters and the situation didn't really move me though, and nothing made me think quite as deeply or as hard as e.g. Ashes Of Time, Fallen Angels or Chungking Express. I plan to watch it again one day knowing what to expect, and then I may be more impressed.

I can't help comparing it to Juliet In Love, which I saw a few days earlier and moved me so much more.
