A still from Wong Kar Wai’s ‘In The Mood For Love’

Wong Kar Wai’s In The Mood for Love will be presented as an NFT with a 91-second unseen day one footage.

In The Mood for Love is a classic romantic drama movie that premiered in 2000 and is considered as Wong Kar Wai’s masterpiece. The film stars Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung, who play spouses to people who have an affair together, and also develop feelings for each other along the way. It was listed as the second-best film of the 21st century by the BBC survey in 2016. It is often listed as one of the greatest films of all time and one of the major contributions of Asian cinema.

Recently, Sotheby’s announced through an Instagram post that a never-before-seen footage of the film is up for auction as NFT at Sotheby’s Hong Kong.
