film: in the mood for love









Asians are not unloving and unromantic and unaesthetic. That is a falsehood. Of course they are not known for their sensuality like ze French, naturally, but there are some pretty wonderful things. Like haikus, pretty silks, oriental tea, bamboo paper and Wong Kar Wai films. 'In the Mood for Love', is a delightful film about two cuckolds (ahah, sorry, but I must) who develop a delicate and moving bond. It is really one of the most sumptous yet intricately subtle films I have ever had the pleasure to see, soft like cotton, pretty like qi pao silks and a wonderful mix of East meets West.
