Film description

In this plotless film Tsai Ming-Liang compares different motifs and situations which serve as a commentary for each other. A man in a trance caused by ritual dancing is replaced by half-naked girls writhing in erotic postures to kitschy music. Dead and dying fish washed ashore, contaminated water, empty industrial spaces, a woman trying to ward off bad spirits. These seemingly unconnected images combine into a disturbing reflection on coexistence of spirituality and liflessness, eroticism and dehumanisation. This is neither a documentary nor a nightmarish vision, this is a project, an open statement. The director himself said about his work: I decided to use the most basic and simple way of filming. This changed the way I saw things. Filming the underground passage, I didn't consider it to be filming but rather using the camera as my eyes...
