Mourning begets tenderness, maturity and surprising passion in this sophisticated Taiwanese drama of loss and rebirth. Ming (Hong Kong-Canadian star Karena Lam) and Yuwei (Taiwanese rocker Stone) each lost a spouse and each finds a pathway, through despair and denial, to something close to a revelation. Tom Lin’s beautifully crafted images and tender, attentive camera bathe the film in lovely muted colours, where sadness can suddenly yield to quiet rapture. Shelly Kraicer
