Dir. Midi Z. Taiwan, Malaysia, Myanmar. 2019, 103 mins. DCP. In Mandarin with English subtitles. With Wu Ke-Xi, Sung Yu-Hua, Hsia Yu-Chiao, Shih Ming-Shuai. After eight years toiling in bit parts, aspiring actress Nina Wu finally gets her big break with a leading role in a spy thriller set in the 1960s. The shoot is challenging—there are explicit sex scenes and the director is impatient and insenstitive—but the film proves to be a professional and critical breakthrough. Yet Nina’s psychological resolve begins to crack. In light of two family crises, she rushes back to her family home, where she dreams of rekindling a close relationship with her childhood friend Kiki while suffering from visions of a mysterious woman stalking and attacking her. As Nina clings to memories of happier times, it seems that there is one crucial memory that she is repressing. A Film Movement release. New York Premiere.
