"A mesmerizing tale of love never realized - it's up there with Brief Encounter and Roman Holiday as the best of the genre." ★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times (UK)
"Stylized, set-designed to the last hair wisp, the film is a mixture of bold devices with delicate understatement that leave a remarkable aftereffect." ★★★★ Liam Lace, Globe and Mail
"...even the camera has to steal glances." ★★★★★ Adam Kempenaar, Filmspotting
In 1962, journalist Chow Mo-wan (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) and his wife move into a Hong Kong apartment, but Chow's spouse is often away on business. Before long, the lonely Chow makes the acquaintance of the alluring Su Li-zhen (Maggie Cheung Man-yuk), whose own significant other also seems preoccupied with work. As the two friends realize their respective partners are cheating on them, they begin to fall for one another; however, neither wants to stoop to the level of the unfaithful spouses.
