''In the Mood for Love'' (original title: 花樣年華) is a movie by UsefulNotes/HongKong art-house director Creator/WongKarWai, who had previously made a name for himself with the critically acclaimed ''Film/ChungkingExpress'' in 1994. Released in 2000, it is set in the early 1960s Hong Kong and tells the bittersweet story of a man and a woman (played respectively by Creator/TonyLeung and Creator/MaggieCheung) who are neighbors, and whose respective spouses have an affair with each other. While they find themselves increasingly attracted to each other, they refuse to give in to their feelings out of a sense of propriety.

* HongKong: That's where the story takes place, but since it's set in the early 1960s and the city has changed a lot since then, the movie had to be shot in Malaysia.
