Wong's quasi-sequel to 2001's "In the Mood for Love" is a swoony, hopeless romance about lovers who meet each other at the wrong time to fall in love. Womanizing Chow (Leung Chui-wai) is a pulp fiction writer who moves into Room 2047 of Hong Kong's Hotel Oriental and gets involved with the beautiful women who briefly occupy Room 2046 ("2046" is also the name of the sci-fi novel Chow is writing). There are two ex-girlfriends named Su Li (Gong Li and Cheung), whom he left behind in Singapore; Lulu/Mimi (Lau), who is murdered; prostitute Bai Ling (Zhang), who becomes Chow's confidante; and Jing (Wong), the daughter of the hotel's owner who's in love with a man her father disapproves of. It certainly looks gorgeous; Japanese and Mandarin with subtitles.
