ABOUT MOVIE "2046"

Wong Kar-wai wrote and directed 2046, a romantic drama film from Hong Kong released in 2004. It's a loose sequel to Wong's 1990 flicks Days of Being Wild and In the Mood for Love (2000). It recounts the aftermath of Chow Mo-unfinished wan's romance with Su Li-zhen in 1960s Hong Kong, but it also contains some science fiction themes and makes many references to the date of December 24, or Christmas Eve, on which many important events in the film take place.

2046 SYNOPSIS

Days of Being Wild and In the Mood for Love set the stage for 2046, the third installment of a shared story that began with Days of Being Wild and continues with In the Mood for Love.

The film is divided into four primary plot arcs. Three of the stories are about Chow's relationships with women after he loses Su Li-zhen. Chow and Wang Jing-wen are the subject of the first, Chow and Bai Ling are the subject of the second, and Chow and another woman named Su Li-zhen is the subject of the third. The fourth film is set in Chow's enigmatic 2046 world and follows a Japanese passenger who falls in love with a gynoid. The arcs are presented in bits and in a non-chronological order, as is typical in Wong Kar-wai films.

The arcs' approximate order is listed below.
