Program Abstract: "Tsai Ming-liang's strikingly beautiful second feature, 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look at alienation among three young people in Taipei--a real estate agent, a street vendor, and a gay, painfully withdrawn burial-plot salesman--won the Golden Lion at the Venice film festival and is one of the key modernist works of the Taiwanese new wave.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." --The Chicago Reader
