  • What begins as a quirky cyber-sex romantic tease turns darker and more intriguing as director Zero Chou plays all her cards...

  • Although it is explicitly about the tentative romance between two young women, Spider Lilies touches upon the polarities that underlie all human relationships: honesty and dishonesty, trust and distrust, concession and repression.

Audience Reviews for Spider Lilies

  • Apr 01, 2009
    A Taiwanese lesbian drama film. Pretty original and simple as well. More about a platonic love that finds a lot of obstacles to happen, so those looking for girl on girl action, will most likely be disappointed. Not that great, but I liked it a lot.

    [font=Century Gothic]In "Spider Lilies," Jade's(Rainie Yang) webcam is struggling and hopes that getting a tattoo will attract traffic to her website.(Her grandmother occasionally interrupting is certainly not helping.) When she goes to a tattoo parlor, she meets Takeko(Isabelle Leong) who she had a crush on when she was a kid. But their friendship was shattered by a calamitous earthquake. Of greater concern to Jade nowadays is the police investigating her website...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]With the subject of erotic webcams and tattoos, "Spider Lilies" had the chance to be seriously sexy while at the same time correcting such movies as "Tattoo" starring Bruce Dern and Maud Adams and "The Pillow Book" that present tattoos as kind of an aberration.(For the record, I think people get tattoos either because they think it will look cool or they are so drunk they are unable to think straight.) But the movie is just severely dull with a wandering attention before becoming thoroughly pretentious. [/font]

    Visually beautiful, almost lyrical film, very touching and originally told love story. Very well received by the audience at the Gay & Lesbian film festival here in Hamburg.
