One of dear friends, Ingrid, had suggested me to watch this movie about a year and a half ago. I finally signed up for this new movie platform, Filmstruck and saw that it was on and watched it.....wow. Not only this is movie gorgeously shot, the actors, the score, the set design, the story line....everything, was perfect. Everything was exactly what it needed to be. I was in visual overload watching it.
The movie takes place in Hong Kong in 1962 directed by Wong Kar-Wai and it's about two people Chow and Su that move in next door to each other. Throughout the movie they start to realize that they are often alone while both of their spouses are always working overtime. They find refuge in each other and develop a unique friendship, which for the that time period is pretty taboo for a woman and a man to be friends. I am not going to say anymore about the movie, because I don't want to give it away, but understand me when I say that this is a movie worth watching.
