In The Mood For Love – Michael Galasso / Shigeru Umebayashi (2000)


In The Mood For Love
Composer: Michael Galasso/Shigeru Umebayashi
Wong Kar-wai saw in the millennium with a lingering kiss of a movie that romanced audiences with music every bit as gorgeous as its (very gorgeous) visuals. Gathering the combined gifts of American composer Michael Galasso, the great Nat King Cole and Japan’s Shigeru Umebayashi, and mingling them with traditional Chinese motifs, the arthouse auteur evoked a mood of wistful romance. The tender passions of Mrs. Chan (Maggie Cheung) and Chow Mo-wan (Tony Leung), the film’s lovelorn protagonists, are evoked in the lilting strings of Yumeji’s Theme and Angkor Wat, while Nat King Cole's Quizás, Quizás, Quizás is heart-stoppingly poignant.
