It's A Dream

It's A Dream

Synopsis

"Rows of theatre chairs play a major role in Tsai Ming-liang’s It’s a Dream […], shot in a theatre in Kuala Lumpur, occupied by a family sharing and eating durian fruit, and a woman who shares pears on a skewer with the man sitting in the row behind her, in a wordless moment of contact between strangers that is typical of Tsai’s body of work. Tsai’s contribution [to Chacun son cinéma] is like a microcosm of his feature-length ode to the cinema, Bu san." – Nicholas de Villiers, Senses Of Cinema
