In the Mood for Love is a 2000 film directed by Wong Kar-wai, starring Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung, who move in to neighboring Hong Kong apartments and form a bond through a shared suspicion of the extra-marital activities of their spouses. The film premiered at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival, where it was nominated for the Palme d'Or. The English title derives from a Bryan Ferry song, "I'm in the Mood for Love." Wong had planned to name the film Secrets, until listening to the song late in post-production. The film forms the second part of an informal trilogy, together with the first part, Days of Being Wild (1991), and the last part, 2046 (2004).
