Faces of Tsai Ming-Liang series: Vive L'Amour
Three characters cross paths in a vacant Taipei apartment without ever really connecting. Vive reveals the isolation urban dwellers experience despite sharing the same claustrophobic space. The memorable end evokes the sense of ennui and urban decay that permeates Antonioni's films.
