Wong Kar Wai’s classic film 'In the Mood for Love' is colour-saturated and languorous. Set in sixties Hong Kong, it provides an intimate portrayal of its lead characters Chow Mo-wan and Su Li-zhen. The pair first meet when they move into apartments in the same building. The new neighbours repeatedly encounter one another, gradually discovering that their spouses are engaged in an affair, and finding themselves drawn together by mutual loneliness.

With its aching soundtrack and exquisitely abstract cinematography by Christopher Doyle and Mark Lee, this film has been a major stylistic influence on the past two decades of cinema, and is a milestone in Wong’s redoubtable career.

The film will be introduced by CAST studio holder Nina Royle, a painter whose practice also encompasses creative writing, performance and the creation of delicate environments that extend the mood and sensibility of her paintings into lived experience.

Admission £10, including CAST Café supper. Booking essential, for bookings email contact@castcafe.uk or call 01326 569267 during open hours.
