Two neighbors, a woman and a man, form a strong bond after both suspect extramarital activities of their spouses. However, they agree to keep their bond platonic so as not to commit similar wrongs.
The original idea and inspiration for the film stemmed from a Japanese short story concerning two characters who often walk by each other in a stairwell, but do not converse. In that story the characters end up committing suicide.
Feelings can creep up just like that. I thought I was in control.
When Mr. Chow is waiting with Mrs. Chan for the rain to stop, he is suddenly completely dry despite running through the rain only moments earlier.
