Why I love… In the mood for love

“This lyrical beauty, almost archaic.”

I am listening to you. And I am agreeing.

“The sway of the hips, the look. Where does it happen except in this magical, fictional space?”

The intense deliberation. Each look towards and away.
Each inhale of smoke & exhale of defeat.

The crushing elegance of it all.

“The hand brushed away. The hand grasping with an emboldened spirit. A knowing, only for the insider.”

  1. This was such an awesome movie. Very real. Toni Leung has a few movies of this sort, but it was the first time I saw Maggie Leung in anything other than a Jackie Chan fun movie. Love Wong Kar Wai’s movies. Hope you’ve seen Chunking Express.
