248 – In the mood for love (2000)

The best part of the film.

The best part of the film.

This one’s set in some Asian county,probably China or somewhere like that.It’s about this woman in her 30’s,who wears nice dresses,that rents a room in a house.There’s a guy next door who rents a room there the same day and moves in.The first 30 minutes of the film consists of people asking each other to buy them stuff ; a tie, hand bags ,a rice cooker and some other stuff.As it turns out,or so i reckon,the guy and the woman’s husband and wife turn out to be having an affair with each other.I think.This film trys way too hard to be like a French love story with it’s slow motion shots of people smoking and standing under street lights or looking wistfully out of windows and all that kind of rubbish.In some ways it’s  a lot like Lost In Translation,it doesn’t have a beginning middle or and an end and they’re both shit.
