Freer Gallery of Art presents a screening of the Taiwanese film. Mandarin with English subtitles.
In this madcap and lighthearted comedic romp, introverted optometrist Weichung begins to question his marriage with his wife, Feng, upon learning of her desire to have another baby. At his sister’s engagement party, Weichung bumps into an old friend, Stephen, a wedding photographer who, though also married, is living the high life of a younger, single gay man. Dormant emotions are awakened and Weichung sets off on a quest for true romance and desire. (Dir.: Arvin Chen, Taiwan, 2013, 100 min., D-Cinema, Mandarin with English subtitles)
