Overly flamboyantly told stories

The truth is, I don't really want to be in love for the rest of my life. One is that there is no capital, and the other is that I don’t know whether to look forward to it or not, because when you and him are standing on the street at night and watching the crowd in the distance, how do you know what to do to find eternity. So Su Lizhen cried blankly. Zhou Muyun also didn't know what to do.
I held your hand and said that it takes a long time to be friends because I am too afraid to lose you.

The second half of the story drags a little, and the whole thing is a little contrived. However, the writing is very accurate and in place, which is still quite good.

In the Mood for Love quotes

  • Chow Mo-wan: That handbag I saw you with this evening... Where did you buy it?

    Su Li-zhen Chan: Why do you ask?

    Chow Mo-wan: It looked so elegant. I want to get one for my wife.

    Su Li-zhen Chan: Mr. Chow, you're so good to your wife!

    Chow Mo-wan: Not really! My wife is so fussy. Her birthday is some days away. I don't know what to get her. Could you buy one for me to give her?

    Su Li-zhen Chan: Maybe she wouldn't want one just exactly the same.

    Chow Mo-wan: You're right, I didn't think of that.

    Su Li-zhen Chan: A woman would mind.

    Chow Mo-wan: Yes, especially since we're neighbors. Do they come in other colors?

    Su Li-zhen Chan: I'd have to ask my husband.

    Chow Mo-wan: Why?

    Su Li-zhen Chan: He bought it for me on a business trip abroad. They aren't on sale here.

    Chow Mo-wan: Then never mind.

    Su Li-zhen Chan: Actually... I want to ask you something too. Where did you buy your tie?

    Chow Mo-wan: I don't know where it came from. My wife buys all my ties.

    Su Li-zhen Chan: Really?

    Chow Mo-wan: She bought this one on a business trip abroad. It's not on sale here.

    Su Li-zhen Chan: What a coincidence!

    Chow Mo-wan: Yes.

    Su Li-zhen Chan: Actually... My husband has one just like it. He said it was a gift from his boss. So he wears it every day.

    Chow Mo-wan: And my wife has a bag just like yours.

    Su Li-zhen Chan: I know, I've seen it.

    Chow Mo-wan: What are you getting at, actually?

    Su Li-zhen Chan: I thought I was the only one who knew.

    Title Card: It is a restless moment. She has kept her head lowered, to give him a chance to come closer. But he could not, for lack of courage. She turns and walks away.
