Synopsis

A father and his two children wander the margins of Taipei. By day the father works as a human billboard. Each night the family takes shelter in an abandoned building, where the father is strangely affected by a hypnotic mural. On the day of the father’s birthday the family is joined by a woman…

Our take

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Venice, Tsai Ming-liang’s Stray Dogs is an exceedingly beautiful and heartbreaking gem. The film brings out a rare intensity from its performers through its mise-en-scène, as incredible close-ups and audacious camera placements stun in this formal masterpiece.
