日子

Rating: R21 (Sexual Scene)

Synopsis

Tsai Ming-Liang continues his longtime collaboration with actor and muse Lee Kang-Sheng, who in real life, and in Days, is plagued by chronic neck pain. Lee’s character lives alone in a house up in the mountains, venturing into the city sporadically to seek different treatments for his ailment. Meanwhile, living in a small, spartan flat in Bangkok is a young man who similarly goes about his life unhurriedly, and mostly alone. One day, Lee visits Bangkok for treatment, and the two share a passionate encounter.

With plot, narrative and dialogue stripped to a bare minimum, quiet, mundane moments are allowed to unfold gently in real time. Imbued with a deeply meditative quality, Days is a tender study of intimacy, loneliness and the beauty of human connections.
