Dot 2 Dot - a film about 2 outsiders in present day Hong Kong
Dim dui dim aka Dot 2 Dot is a quiet intimate look at the lives of two outsiders - one from mainland China, and the other, has lived much of his life in Canada. He is highly educated and possesses an enviable work record; and he is handsome, and so he quickly catches the eye of one of his staff. She is a language teacher but as her principal notes, never smiles, at least in her classes, nor does she mix socially with the staff.
Their lives become intertwined as she begins to research and ultimately solve the dot diagrams that he created before leaving HK. As such the film took me places I knew - subway stations, various districts - came to see in a new light.
The script fleshes out some of the supporting characters, who make a good impression, and I got myself geared up to see what Round 3 would bring about.
A very attractive couple, but lacking in old fashioned social skills, though we come to understand why She is so insular, and why He lives in the past.
I saw this film on a Vancouver multi-cultural television station; in a 2 hour time slot, its 90 minute running time meant a lot of commercials!
