Auditorium, Library and Archives Canada

(395, rue Wellington Street, Ottawa)

Director: Tsai Ming-liang (2006, 118 minutes)

Cast: Lee Kang-Sheng, Chen Shiang-Chyi, Norman Atun

Homeless on the streets of Kuala Lumpur, Hsiao Kang is robbed, beaten and left for dead; he is found and nursed by Rawang, an immigrant worker, who lives in the shell of a modernist building abandoned during construction. Rawang’s feelings for his patient may or may not be sexual, but there’s definitely something like lust in the eyes of Chyi, a waitress in a run-down old coffee shop, when they light upon the recovering Hsiao Kang.  And so a triangle forms as a blanket of noxious fog settles on the city and everyone has trouble breathing. Simulateously erotic and comical, the film underpins Tsai’s deadpan allegory with hints of social realism. 

( Free Admission, with English Subtitle )

Presented by Canadian Film Institute, in collaboration with the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office, Canada
