In the Mood for Love

One of the most critically acclaimed film of the 21st century; I chose this film for my fifth entry. Not only is it visually stunning, it is also emotionally moving. Written, produced and directed by Wong Kar Wai, it stars Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung.
It takes place in Hong Kong, 1962. So Lai-zhen (Maggie Cheung) and Chow Mo-Wan (Tony Leung) together with their spouses, each rent a room in an apartment of a building on the same day. They began spending time together as their spouses are often away at work. Later on, they discover that their spouses are having an affair with each other and themselves thrown into an uncertain affair.
Below is a shortened video of the movie.
