In the Mood for Love
14 Feb 2019Book Now
With live concert
Set in 1960s Hong Kong, Wong Kar-Wai’s masterpiece begins with a man and a woman moving into the same building on the same day.
Slowly, they are drawn together through a mutual suspicion that their spouses are being unfaithful. Told through gorgeous jewel-coloured cinematography, intensely understated emotion and haunting music, the result is an almost unbearably powerful story of forbidden love battling obligation.
Ahead of the film screening, a swoon-inducing 30-minute concert of music for strings evokes the musical atmosphere of the film to make the perfect Valentine’s Day evening.
