The Hole (1998). 95 min.
In Mandarin with English subtitles
Saturday, Nov. 21, 3:00 pm
Days before the new millennium, Taipei is plagued by an endemic that causes the infected to behave like cockroaches. A few residents of an apartment complex have refused to evacuate. A man and a woman are connected by a hole between their apartments formed by an unending water leak. Occasional outbursts of fanciful and surreal musical numbers break the silence between them and reveal suppressed desires.
