Synopsis

The film focuses on three city folks who unknowingly share the same apartment: Mei, a real estate agent who uses it for her sexual affairs; Ah-jung, her current lover; and Hsiao-ang, who’s stolen the key and uses the apartment as a retreat.

Our take

A tender triptych on loneliness and urban alienation à la Antonioni, Vive l’amour is the breakthrough (and Golden Lion-winning) sophomore feature from Taiwan’s Tsai Ming-liang, one of our greatest directors: a master of contemplative cinema, deadpan humor, and wry melancholy.
