Directed by Wong Kar Wai

This loose sequel to In the Mood for Love combines that film’s languorous air of romantic longing with a dizzying time-hopping structure and avant-sci-fi twist. Leung reprises his role as a writer whose numerous failed relationships with women who drift in and out of his life (and the one who goes in and out of room 2046, down the hall from his apartment) inspire the delirious futuristic love story he pens.

2046’s dazzling fantasy sequences give Wong and two of his key collaborators – cinematographer Christopher Doyle and editor/costume designer/production designer William Chang Suk Ping – licence to let their imaginations run wild.
