Taiwan / 2020 / No dialogue / 127 minutes / Color
Rain pours. Trees sway. Lee sits still on his sofa, watching the days go by, with the pain in his neck and back lingering. Under a different sky, Anong lives a life no less ordinary, spending his days alone. Love transpires in an encounter between the two men, as gentle caresses soothe the pain and loneliness in each of them. Tsai Ming-Liang’s (Your Face, 43rd) experimental feature extends the boundaries of abstract realism, distilling his subtle cinematic language into its purest form. Teddy Award Special Mention, Berlinale.
