A dark, yet stunningly beautiful thriller, set in the foggy forests of Taiwan. A man working in a restaurant suddenly loses consciousness. His friends drive him to his father, who lives in the country and takes care of a hill-spread flower farm in solitude. Soon it turns out that the protagonist is not himself anymore – perhaps it is possession, or maybe a refined form of madness, which leads to a family psychodrama. Mong-hong meticulously builds up the tension and masterfully joins a stylish horror with an auteur touch, discretely enriching the plot with an insightful philosophical reflection on the connection between the body and the soul.
Born in 1965. Studied Computer Engineering in Taiwan and Filmmaking in Chicago. He made over 100 TV commercials, and a number of award-winning short features and music videos. His first full-length feature, "Parking," was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes IFF, and his "The Fourth Portrait" received awards at Golden Horse Festival and Taipei FF.
