Press Play to start
At the 16th edition of Five Flavors, as last year, there is a system of booking seats at cinema screenings for accreditation and pass holders. It is important to us that we take care not to overcrowd the rooms and avoid queues at the entrance.
Only a reservation guarantees you a seat at a screening!
The reservation system is very simple and is based on similar principles as buying tickets for individual screenings - just login to your account, visit the page of the selected film and click "book". Detailed information can be found below.
Please make reservations only for the screenings you wish to attend. Reservations can be cancelled, even at the last minute - please remember this and always cancel your reservation if you cancel your screening - this will allow other viewers to use the available space.
Reservations will be possible from Tuesday, 15 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 15, 12:00 pm
If you decide to attend a screening at the last minute or for any other reason you do not book in advance, and there are seats available in the auditorium, your booking will be made "automatically" at the entrance to the auditorium after scanning your pass.
For most of the screenings there will be free seats before the show itself. However, please pay special attention to the screenings of Edward Yang's works and the screenings of those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
This year, you will also be able to use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
Chien-yi is subletting a space on the roof of an old lady’s apartment. He is cooking for her, takes care of her health, and picks her grandson up from school. The boy is the son of his partner of many years, whose sudden death has left a painful mark on the entire family. When Ms. Chou passes away, things get even more complicated. A criminal mystery, touchingly intertwined with an emotional drama, provokes many questions about the meaning of blood relations and the call of the heart.
The works on the script were already very advanced when Taiwan legalized same-sex marriages. But the great joy and relief experienced by same-sex families has a blind spot – the adoption of children remains unregulated. The film touches upon one of the problems that non-heteronormative families can encounter, showing the subject in a very broad, surprising way. Cheng stresses that he was interested not so much in same-sex relationships, but in the complexities of family relations. He wanted to look at the way that dependencies are shaped between people who create familiar ties through feelings – not just the feelings between partners, but also the whole network of older and younger generations surrounding the couple that decides to go through life together.
Born in Taiwan in 1977, Yu-Chieh Cheng is a director, screenwriter, actor and producer of Taiwanese film and television. "Dear Tenant" is his fourth feature film.
