Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Hong Kong Cinema: In the Mood for Love. It needs to be at least 2250 words. The movie at this point focuses on the loneliness of the two persons who often meet in the market place and in the apartment during their different endeavors. To stress their solitude, the movie delves on recurrent loneliness of eating alone.
As the film progresses, both Chow and Su begin to be suspicious of their partners’ sexual exploits and later conclude that their partners have been seeing each other. Chow and Su grow close with time and Chow solicit Su’s help in writing a paper. Chow and Su’s close relationship is noticed by the neighbors who begin to murmur about it. Consequently, Chow gets a hotel room, where they can work with Su away from the scrutiny of neighbors. They soon realize that they have grown an affection for each other.
Chow finds another job in Singapore and so has to move. He invites Su to come along with him but leaves without her as she arrives late for the departure. In the following year, Su goes to Singapore too and makes a stop at Chow’s and calls him but remains silent over the phone. Chow discovers that it was Su who had visited his apartment when he finds a cigarette stained with lipstick in his ashtray. After 3 years, Mrs. Suen (who is moving to the United States) is visited by Su. Su inquires whether the apartment is available for rent. Later on, as Chow visits his landlords (the Koos) he discovers they have moved to the Philippines. He inquires about the Suen family living next door and the caretaker reveals to him that a woman and her child are the tenants there-in. However, Chow leaves without finding out that Su is the woman living next door (In the Mood for Love, 2001).
The two main characters in this film both change in search of better career opportunities. Initially, too, both Chow and Su relocate away from the nosy neighbors to a private hotel room where their identities are unknown and where they can be themselves and advance their relationship.
