Without dialogue
Director: Tsai Ming-liang
Starring: Lee Kang-sheng
Distributor: Homegreen Films

Kang’s desire to relieve himself of pain and his constant solitude brings him to a massage parlour with a young masseur. The trajectories of these two men with different backgrounds shortly meet in a moment filled with intense sensory experience and cause a stir in their solitary lives.

It is, in the best possible way, a nurturing and hypnotising film infused with moments of unforgettable transience. Read more
