Movie Info

Separated from her husband, lonely dress-designer Ju-feng (Chen Shiang-chyi) hopes to spend time with her brother Chuen-sheng (Lee Kang-sheng), but when he returns from military service, he chooses instead to steal from their father, play the sax, and hang out with Taipei hookers. Mei-li (Chang Pen-yu) steals Ju-feng's cell phone, with the result that the two know each other only through phone conversations. Coincidentally, Chuen-sheng has sex with Mei-li, telling her in passing how he once slept with his sister. Unaware that Chuen-sheng is Ju-feng's brother, Mei-li uses no name when she relates this anecdote to Ju-feng. Later, Chuen-sheng introduces Mei-li to his father and sister, and Ju-feng is stunned when she finally begins to jigsaw together all the connections. In Mandarin and Hokkien dialogue. Shown at the 1998 Berlin Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
