The second part of a loosely planned, still uncompleted trilogy about Shanghainese in Hong Kong, 2046 “echoes” (in Wong’s preferred term) In the Mood For Love’s writer protagonist (Tony Leung Chiu-wai) three years on, now working on an erotic story, set in the year 2046, about a place where people lose themselves in memories. 2046 the film is mostly a state of mind, of romantic fatalism, solitude, and languid splendor, heightened by the beauty of William Chang’s retro production design and a cast featuring Leung, Gong Li, Faye Wong, Zhang Ziyi, and Chang Chen. “Quite simply an incomparably sublime work of art” (Andrew Sarris).
