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.

A cross-cultural lesbian ghost story
17 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Is this a perfect movie? No. But is a great whatever-it-is.

Ghost stories are all about memory. (Just as zombie flicks are about death, Frankenstein is about overreaching man/science, vampires are about gluttony (sexual and otherwise), and werewolves about our animal drives.) This is an awesome ghost story. I enjoyed it immensely. I hope Monika Treut has another one in her.

We see the German writer haunted by the memory of her deceased lover, even as another woman (seems) to take her place. In reality, the restless Asian spirit is simply sought by the German lady simply to place her to rest.

"Dream Boy" was a gay (male), Southern ghost story. "Ghosted" is a Euro-Chinese lesbian version. They both rock, and I enjoyed them both immensely.
