Film description

Hong Kong bathed in the golden light of the 1960s. Chow Mo-wan and Su li-zhen are neighbors living in two rented apartments side by side. The journalist with the perfect haircut and the elegant secretary in perfectly fitted dress exchange casual pleasantries at the stairway. Until they find out their spouses are having an affair with each other. The silent understanding will sprout into a relationship which, at that place and time, should not have come to fruition.

This extravagantly sensual masterpiece is a poem about the unfulfilled desires and the painful loneliness. One of the most beautiful pictures in the history of cinema, masterfully woven with shadows, mirror images, secretive gestures and glances. The thick music filling the frames, the cigarette smoke, the embellished wallpapers and the jade teacups create the background for piercing nostalgia – the craving for what is gone and for what was never here.
