Having not watched 'In the Mood of Love' (which I hear is a prequel to '2046'), I was apprehensive about watching this film.

But it didn't matter, cuz the time lines in this one is just completely wacked. There seem to be a lot of metaphors going on and flashbacks between the make-believe world of 2046 and the old days of 1960. Tony Leong plays Chow Mo Wan, who writes these stories about 2046 for newspapers... but these stories reflect his thoughts and the people he encounters.

The story may take a little mental acrobatics, but the cinematography is terribly tempting. Especially scenes with Faye Wong (Wang Jing Wen/Android on 2046 Train) and Zhang Ziyi (Bai Ling). Faye Wong randomly reciting Japanese phrases as the camera watches her feet dance and twirl across the floor was hypnotic. Plus her scene with Takuya Kimura (Tak/Wang Jing Wen's Boyfriend) makes me wet my pants.

Zhang Ziyi on the other hand, is so super 'tao', it's sexy. Even when she slapped Tony across his face, it was sexy. That pain looked more like pleasure.

Cheongsams, oh her cheongsams. How can a garment maximise a woman's sex appeal and accentuate whatever curves she has so deliciously...

keke....i find the collars especially sexy. if you look carefully at those Shanghai-style ones (which would be those worn by Maggie Cheung in "In The Mood For Love"), the lines running from the side of the cheeks, down the slim neck, right on to the skinny shoulders....that was way more sexy than the high-slits on the thighs. :D

I noticed that. The collars were super high, but it made their necks look so slim and elegant. Aiyah, what high slit? Didn't see much leg except for Zhang Ziyi rubbing her feet on Tony Leung's chest.

:D I love the way the cheongsam hugs a woman's figures and i like the slit up the leg too. D: I sound pervy.

Hee, I only watched In the Mood for Love as one of our lecturers played it for us to analyse. It's a GORGEOUS film. :3
