Picking up where after In The Mood For Love left off, 2046 is a visually seductive reverie of memory and regret, refracted through a serial womanizer's experiences with six women.
Chow Mo Wan - played by Tony Leung Chiu-wai with the charm of a young Clark Gable - moves from being a gambler to a pulp fiction writer, and 2046 follows him through various liaisons with several beautiful women, played by Ziyi Zhang, Gong Li, Faye Wong, Carina Lau, Dong Jie and Maggie Cheung. Playfully merging past, present, and future, 2046 is at once the number of the hotel room in which the couple of after In The Mood For Love conducted their extra marital encounters, and the date of Hong Kong's final integration into China.
