[22] In The Mood For Love

[22] In The Mood For Love

As the musical piece titled "Yumeji's theme" invades the sound space of the visuals of Wong Kar Wai's "In The Mood For Love" everything slows down as if we are watching a music video inside a movie. The re-appearance of this musical piece (a striking eight times) is a leitmotif to describe the relationship between Chow [...]
