YMMV / In the Mood for Love

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: The director has stated that he finds it curious that the main characters are seen as virtuous, when they actually have a very strange relationship. He likens Chow to Jimmy Stewart's character in Vertigo, and says that his sympathetic face disguises the darkness inside him.
  • Narm/Narm Charm: The gratuity of slow-motion would make Zack Snyder blush, but whether or not it works is up to the viewer.
  • Tear Jerker: Throughout, but especially the ending, when Chow, realizing that they will most likely never be together, goes to Angkor Wat to whisper what is presumably a declaration of love into a hole in the cliff.
