In 60s Hong Kong, an adulterous romance is happening elsewhere. Kar-wai's interest lies with the cuckolded, and the way that something even more intense, personal and fortuitous develops out of their shared 'adulteree' status. Kar-Wai offers a seductive surface texture that's undercut by his trademark emphasis of the accidental over the clearly intentional. Subtly stunning filmmaking.
