  5. ginobartolomi's rating of the film Vive l'amour

    A strange little tale about three people who are unknowingly sharing a vacant apartment in Taiwan. I think I'm getting a clear message from Tsai Ming-Liang's films, and that is that we are surrounded daily by people and goings on that we hardly notice, know nothing about. We may be affected greatly but remain apathetic and self centered all the while... That shot of Yang Kwei-Mei sobbing is heart wrenching.

  6. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Vive l'amour

    The first Tsai Ming-Liang film I have seen. Now that I have seen one I wonder why I did not start watching his films sooner because this was brilliant!

  13. jchandleroc's rating of the film Vive l'amour

    An attempt to retreat from a cruelly indifferent city/universe brings together three unwitting companions in despair and exposes the secret devastation in their lives. Even together they are profoundly alone. The camera isolates these individuals, deliberately examining their uniquely wrecked inner selves while never truly allowing them to escape the city that has left them in ruins.

  14. La Foret's rating of the film Vive l'amour

    People owning solitude in places they don't belong. it is easy to die from it.

  15. wintermelontea's rating of the film Vive l'amour

    im a sucker for films about urban loneliness in 1990s asian cities (coughs). i really liked how the film explored this theme and the relationships of city dwellers through an empty unsold apartment room.

  17. Erik F.'s rating of the film Vive l'amour

    Oh man, that final scene is so relatable. Sometimes the bleakness and general BS of life really does become unbearable, and you just want to go sit in a quiet park and cry your ass off for a little while. Vive la catharsis!

  18. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Vive l'amour

    Alone together, as they say: young people who can't afford luxury and haven't found soulmates see if they can fake both in this beautiful drama whose minimalist script sneaks up on you with gradually revealed wisdom. It's looser and less forceful than Tsai's later masterpieces (my votes are for Wayward Cloud and What Time is It There?), but his themes and style were coalescing. Lovely melancholy by any standard.

  19. EdieEmm's rating of the film Vive l'amour

    Do you think there was a decisive moment when Tsai looked at Lee Kang-sheng and knew that he'd never make another movie without him? Do you think it was when he was doing those pushups in that dress & boa? I love this film. I love these characters; if I was the type to have heroes, it'd be them. I love this early piece of what develops through Tsai's films as not just world-view but manifesto. And, gah! The beauty...

  20. OcioActivo's rating of the film Vive l'amour

    An interesting trio. As my first Ming-Liang film, I was impressed at how light-of-touch these characters were handled. One apartment and three people who don't belong there could serve as a Diabolique-type of scenario or raunchy comedy but instead, we see a series of events that illuminates what makes these people interesting to follow. I won't pretend I understood it all but I enjoyed the subtle comedy & tension.

  21. Des Horne's rating of the film Vive l'amour

    One of the hottest movies ever made. I'm less interested in the "alienation" ideas here than I am in other Tsai films, but I love the sensitivity and liveliness of both the filmmaking and cinematography in particular.

  22. Alex's rating of the film Vive l'amour

    my expectations were not fullfilled, and the film did not convince me to look past that. On the other hand, there were some good scenes. Also, it seemed to inspire ideas for my own films.

  23. mykunos's rating of the film Vive l'amour

    It's a mystery to me how Tsai Ming-liang can compose such glacial yet magnetic scenes.

  24. caitlin.f's rating of the film Vive l'amour
