In The Mood For Love (花樣年華)



Have you seen a film, In The Mood For Love, directed by Wong Kar-Wei? The wall, with the bricks, the stems, and the mud, somehow reminded me a quote from this poetic film.

(quote)
Chow Mo-Wan: In the old days, if someone had a secret they didn't want to share... you know what they did?

Ah-Ping: Have no idea.

Chow Mo-Wan: They went up a mountain, found a tree, carved a hole in it, and whispered the secret into the hole. Then they covered it with mud. And leave the secret there forever.
(unquote)

It is a beautiful, yet implicit film.

This wall is just one of the many walls in Park Slope, Brooklyn. They all carry too many secrets already.
