Interesting, well shot short about a guy (Zheng Ting Wang) who obsesses about a beautiful young woman (Haiha Le), who works at the local fish market. The man buys a fish from the woman, goes home, and then proceeds to have a very unusual bath. Using camera techniques similar to Wong Kar-Wai, writer/director Adam Arkapaw manages quite effectively to get inside the head of this man who is obviously attracted to the young woman, but would rather fantasise about her as an attractive image than actually get to know her as a person. Credit must also go to cinematographer Ari Wegner, who captures the real and the surreal with style. Arkapaw shows a nicely Asian eye for framing and composition, during the market scenes as well as the scenes at the man's apartment. Both Wang and Le are perfectly cast. Wang displays a convincingly love-lorn face, showing someone who can only admire from a distance. Le is certainly alluring, allowing Arkapaw to easily make his point.
