This is part of the Century of Chinese Cinema season. Full details here. The film also screens on Sunday 28 September.
Tsai Ming-liang's strikingly beautiful second feature (1994), a haunting look at alienation among three young people in Taipei—a real estate agent, a street vendor, and a gay, painfully withdrawn burial-plot salesman—won the Golden Lion at the Venice film festival and is one of the key modernist works of the Taiwanese new wave. Working principally without dialogue, with a feeling for modern architecture and contemporary urban despair that often recalls Michelangelo Antonioni, the film gathers its forces slowly, but builds to a devastating finale.
Here and above is an extract.
