2046 Official Ocean Films
2046 is a Hong Kong movie (filmed in Shanghai) written and directed by Wong Kar-wai and released in 2004. It is a loose sequel to Days of Being Wild (released in 1991) and In the Mood for Love (released in 2000). It follows the aftermath of Chow Mo-wan's unconsummated affair with Su Li-Zhen in 1960s Hong Kong but also includes some science fiction elements.
An atmospheric romance about dark-edged romance--sometimes skin deep; sometimes throbbing with physical and visual sensation.
The camera achieves striking beauty... Each smile, each tear, each lit cigarette achieves a sort of luminescent stature unmatched by even Wong’s previous films.
Another achingly evocative and melancholy near-masterpiece from Wong Kar-Wai...blessed with vivid, visceral performances that burst at the seams with reserved passion.
