Literature in Action: In the Mood for Love

My latest post to the Literature in Action part of my blog is up! https://christiestratos.com/literature-in-action/in-the-mood-for-love/. Check out my analysis of the beautiful foreign film In the Mood for Love. I’ve watched it at least four times since I first discovered it and can always watch it again. It’s a fascinating study of psychology with a backwards romance plot which keeps you wondering until the end.

Watch it and see if you agree with my analysis – and leave your comments!
