In the Mood for Love

This event has passed.

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 by Alice Zawadzki and Rob Lufta will evoke the musical atmosphere of the film to make the perfect Valentine’s Day evening.

I can’t think of a more moving, or more cleverly-told film
