In the Mood for Love 2000
The two highly photogenic leading actors, Tony Leung Chiu-wai (Chow Mo-wan) and Maggie Cheung Man-yuk (Su Li-zhen), play two unsuspecting people who move into neighboring apartments in a tiny Shanghainese enclave of Hong Kong in 1962. It isn’t long before they each realize that both of their spouses are often away on business trips a lot at the same time and come to the realization that they are having an affair. Searching for the reasons why and how it happened, Chow and Su begin a relationship of their own, acting out possible scenarios of the beginnings of their adulterous spouses’ clandestine affair, but never taking it to the next level. “We’ll never be like them,” they promise each other. Even when they get a hotel room together it isn’t for prurient reasons, but to work on a martial arts serial that Chow has begun writing for his newspaper, to continue their fleshing out of the affair and to work through their own guilt and shame. Perhaps, inevitably, all of this closeness brings them to the brink of doing the very thing they have been condemning their spouses for, however, and their flirtation with adultery and the gossip that it brings begins to become too much for the pair to bear.
