Why in the Mood for Love Is the Most Quintessential Romance Film for Every Cinephile

The mood In the Mood for Love creates is that of longing; a mixture of feelings of desire and regret over things done, or not done. The film follows Mr. Chow and Mrs. Chan as suspect that their spouses are having an affair.
What makes this film distinct and unique when compared to most romantic movies is that it deals with a relationship that is never going to happen, but nevertheless, a great loss is experienced.
A portrayal of a couple agreeing to keep their bond "platonic", and yet suffering great sadness over the loss of each other that spans over years, is a recipe for a love story long to be remembered.
Visually, and in terms of a distinct cinematic style, the moments of intimacy and sadness are captured with perfection.
"In the Mood for Love" may be considered the most romantic movie of this century; the uniqueness of its narration and its characters' most intimate feelings are depicted with great care, sincerity, and artistic vision, making it a stunning accomplishment.
