Hong Kong, 1962: neighbors Chow Mo-Wan (Tony Leung Chiu-wai) and Su Li-Zhen (Maggie Cheung) suspect their spouses business trips to Japan are cover for an affair; as the truth becomes clearer, so do the feelings of Mr. Chow and Mrs. Chan. Cinematographers Christopher Doyle and Mark Lee Ping Bing bring to life — in vivid detail — an elegant pile-up of affections, memories, and illusions. A slow seduction of stolen glances; the “Quizás, Quizás, Quizás” of restrained passions prove, once again, Wong Kar Wai can wring more emotions out of a silk dress than stains at a laundromat.
