For those who don’t know me personally, I am coming from a « film making » background. When i was planning to launch this blog, i had this category about home interiors in the movies. I call it « muse-en-scene ».
So here you have the first post of this category. I wanted to launch it with one of my favourite director of all times: Wong Kar Wai. I am a huuuge fan of his cinematography, lightning, simple and touching stories, characters…everything he does in fact.
In the mood for love is, in my point of view, the climax in his stylish cinematography. Interiors of Hong-Kong flats are so tiny, yet so ingeniously shot , Maggie Cheung’s dresses are in a perfect harmony with every scene she is in, yet it doesn’t feel superficial. I love the richness of the patterns and colours on the walls, dresses, beds etc..I am not going to talk more, but let you see some of the screenshots i have. I almost wanted to capture every single image of this movie, it’s a piece of art.
