EXPAT CINEMA is our monthly screening of a brand-new non-English arthouse film with English subtitles.
In 1962, in Hong Kong, the Chinese expats Mr Chow en Ms. Su rent adjacent rooms in an apartment. When they find out their husbands are having an affair with each other, Mr. Chow and Ms Su find consolation into each other?s arms. Slowly, a passionate love awakens inside both of them, but they refuse to surrender fully to their emotions. Will the love between the two ever flourish?
With In the Mood for Love, Wong Kar-wai made his name into a cinematographic trademark. No director can make a story about platonic love between two high-class Chinese expats look so rock 'n roll and sensual at the same time. With its deep, saturated colors, its crooner soundtrack and the legendary performances by Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung, it is considered to be one of the best films of the 21st century. An exceptional chance to watch this cultfilm on the big screen, in 4K restoration!
"I can't think of a more moving, or more cleverly-told film, one which uses the whole lexicon of cinema so effectively." - The Guardian
"The film?s sublime, closer-than-a-kiss intimacy will sweep you away." - Rolling Stone
