Synapses

Chang Tso-chi, Taiwan

那個我最親愛的陌生人, 2019, 119 min, K16

A family of three generations lives together in an old house. Faced with grandpa’s progressing Alzheimer’s disease and the return from prison of Xiao Meng, the mother of young Ah Chuan and daughter of the family, they struggle to find themselves and a connection to each other. The painfully difficult task of life is potrayed with insight and beautiful melancholy, as in many great Taiwanese films before.
