Storyline

"Be with me" consists of three stories of love vs. solitude : 1)An aging, lonesome shopkeeper doesn't believe in life any more since his wife died. But he is saved from desperation by reading an autobiographical book and meeting its author, a deaf and blind lady of his own age. 2)Fatty, a security guard in his fifties, lives for two things : good food and love for a pretty executive living in his block of flats. But, if it is easy to satisfy his first need winning the heart of the distant belle is a horse of another color. 3)Two teenage schoolgirls get to know each other on the Internet. Soon they fall in love. Written by Guy Bellinger

Love will bring us together
11 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are no memorable quotes in this film as it is mostly silent. It plays like a symphony with glances and expressions doing the talking.

It is about love: love lost, unrequited love, love despite the odds being against it.

Theresa Poh Lin Chan was deaf and blind. She did not sit idly by in misery, but became an accomplished women despite her handicaps. She is real. This story is about three fictional characters that crossed in her path, some only peripherally.

A man who lost his wife and sunk into the depths of despair until his son, a social worker, started taking his cooking to Teresa; a lesbian who found love on the Internet, and then lost it without explanation, and whose suicide attempt brought about the meeting with the man and Teresa; and a security guard who was hopelessly in love with a beautiful executive and passed by the man on the way to deliver a letter to his love - a letter that never made it because of the suicide attempt.

The strange twists of love are looked at languidly and with strong emotion. It is a beautiful film.
