An exquisite film of rocky teenage romance from Taiwan. Part of Roxy's Lesbian and Gay season.
Yuezhen is secretly in love with hunky school swimming star, Shihao. Too shy to approach him, she convinces her best friend Kerou to act as a go-between. Kerou grudgingly agrees, but whenever Shihao appears, Yuezhen flees the scene, leaving the pair alone together. Shihao soon thinks Kerou is slyly using an imaginary character to court him, but she has her sights firmly set elsewhere.
An official selection to Cannes Directors Fortnight 2002 from Chih-Yen Yee, one of Taiwan's most talented directors.
