Andrea Del Rosario,
A mysterious love story between Hamburg and Taipeh. The unsolved murder of her young Taiwanese lover Ai-ling leaves the Hamburg artist Sophie Schmitt completely disoriented. She dedicates a video-installation to her and shows it in Taipei. During the opening she is approached by a mysterious journalist. Sophie is fascinated at first glance by Mei-li, the young journalist. Mei-li takes her to visit the famous Taipei night markets and tries to seduce the artist. Sophie, still mourning her lost lover, rejects Mei-li and returns immediately to Hamburg. Shortly afterwords Mei-li shows up on her doorstep, unannounced. Sophie takes her in and finally falls for her. But soon she realizes that her new lover is secretly investigating Ai-ling's death. Strange happenings occur, sudden flashes of recollection come and go, and then Sophie finds out that there is no Mei-Li working for a Taiwanese newspaper and that no one by that name ever entered Germany. Who is the mysterious Taiwanese woman? Written by
A very curious lesbian love story set in Germany and Taiwan
Gosh, not sure what to say about this movie. Sophie is a German lass who fancies Asian woman who work in her industry and she uses them it seems to achieve professional work in Taiwan while at the same time seducing them. Ay.Ling is one such taiwanese lady who falls for Sophies charms but it seems Sophie has a different agenda, whatever that is and when something happens to Ay.Ling, another taiwanese beauty comes into her web to investigate what happened to the previous girl. A strange and quirky mystery unfolds around lesbian love.
Actually its not a bad movie, the story needs more work and the ending leaves us wondering but the sex scenes between the women are modest and sensitive. Some nice shots of Taiwan and Hamburg for that matter; are there really that many Chinese/taiwanese in Hamburg? gosh! Not a priority movie, even for lesbians, but certainly watchable and the acting is of an acceptable level.
Might wonder though what was the connection between Ay Ling and the second Taiwanese girl .....
