A sequel of sorts to In The Mood For Love, 2046 delves into the pain of romantic heartache and the emotional wreckage it leaves behind. A writer (Leung) juggles women and tortured memories as he tries to come to terms with past hurts. Combining period nostalgia with science fiction, this a visually stunning and beguiling exploration of loss, regret and relationships.

This 4K digital restoration was undertaken from the original 35mm elements by Sony Pictures Classics, in collaboration with Jet Tone Films, L’Immagine Ritrovata, One Cool, and Robert Mackenzie Sound. The restoration was approved by Wong Kar Wai.
