This year’s Cannes Film Festival is set to screen a restored 4K version of Wong Kar-wai’s ‘In The Mood For Love’ film 20 years after its premiere.
First premiered in May 20, 2000, the film will be screened at the 73rd Festival de Cannes, with its director Wong Kar-wai in attendance.
Presented in the official selection and in competition in 2000, the Hong Kong-set romantic film which starred Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung will be screened as part of the Cannes Classics sidebar.
The film won the Grand Prize of the Superior Technical Commission and also won for its lead actor, Tony Leung, the Male Interpretation Prize.
The 4k restoration of the film made from the original negative was led by Criterion and L’Immagine Ritrovata under the supervision of Wong Kar-wai.
After the festival, the film will hit big screens across France and other countries.
Considered as the world’s biggest, Cannes film festival is scheduled to hold from May 12 to 23 2020 at its traditional venue of the beautiful sea-side resort city in the south of France.
