Hong Kong, China — Through longing glances in corridors and across intimate table settings, In the Mood for Love tells the slow-burning love story of two beautiful, betrayed neighbours. The film scooped up awards and nominations across the world, including Cannes, and generated a cloud of acclaim for director Wong Kar-wai. Critics still rank the movie among the best ever made, academic papers have been dedicated to its cinematic impact, and fans include director Sofia Coppola and the late Anthony Bourdain. The indie movie streaming platform MUBI was dreamed up by founder Efe Cakarel, when he found that he was unable to watch the film while in a cafe in Tokyo. Writer and editor Yi Wong took inspiration from the film in her piece That Era, which explores the protagonists in a Hong Kong, and was published in Mekong Review, an Asian literary journal, this month. In preparation for the piece, she watched the movie multiple times.
