this film is vivian chang's first film on the silver screen, if i am not mistaken.
a very concise film i'd say, leaving room for all sorts of possibilities for interpretation from the audience.
three stories consist in this film: one of a 5-year-old girl, one of a teenager, and still another of a 30 something woman involved in an affair with a married man. without providing a definite answer whether the three leading actresses are playing the same person in different stages of life, the movie instead hovers on several consistent themes that keep on emerging in all the stories. for example, the image of drops of blood on the clothes, in the shape of maroon flowers.
a film that is concise and short. almost as good as a poem.
