Tsai Ming-Liang

Film description

In this simple, personal documentary, Tsai talks to HIV-positive young gays. This is an unusually sincere conversation with no atmosphere of sensation. Tsai avoids all 'film tricks', he doesn't manipulate images or attempt to hide his camera. But his interlocutors' faces are covered.

The boys speak about their changed relations with society, about the experience of learning about the infection, and about learning how to live with it. Finally, they speak about how they managed to create happy, lasting relationships afterwards. A diagnosis of the situation of an ill gay in Taiwanese reality becomes a lesson of hope for those for whom HIV is equal to dying.

The spectators' and the director's new friends are the boys Tsai is talking to. New friends of the infected people help them live. But the disease itself is a new friend, too. One has to learn to live with it.
