A Taiwanese director makes a film based on the myth of Salom?? at the Louvre. Language barrier and the sudden news of the passing of the filmmaker's mother in Taipei threaten the completion of the film. A surreal picture traversing time and space, the film features an all star ensemble cast including French New Wave regulars Jean-Pierre L??aud, Fanny Ardant, Jeanne Moreau, as well as Lee Kang-Sheng and supermodel Laetitia Casta. Face is commissioned by the Louvre.
