PROGRAM NOTE


 


 Ah-ming and Yue-Yue have graduated from film
 school but cannot find a job, so they decide to make
 a film out of their own lives. The two take turns holding
 the camera and asking each other questions. During
 the filmmaking process, they learn that they both are
 lovers and sex partners to one married man. The
 camera opens up their old wounds and makes new
 ones, but at the same time acts as a catalyst for these
 to women to speak the truth and reconciles their
 relationship. The two end up calling the married man
 on the phone in front of the camera and reconciles
 him as a \'guy with a small dick\' and form a special
 bond and become good friends again. This firstperson
 narrating camera allows the audiences to
 feel like they are having an intimate and private
 conversations with these two protagonists, while also
 giving them the sense that they are often attacking
 and meddling in these women\'s personal problems,
 just like how the people most close to you hurt you
 the most. The initial part of the film, featuring shaky
 and violent camera movements, is in direct contrast
 with the later parts of the film that shows a tranquil,
 stable camera movement after the two protagonists
 have made up with each other. This film shows the
 audience the lifestyle of an aspiring artist and a
 woman living in Beijing. [Sunah KIM]
