Ni na bian ji dian by Mingliang Cai( visu )

Hsiao Kang is the only son in an uncommunicative family. When his father dies, he and his mother participate in Buddhist mourning rituals together, but otherwise cope with their profound grief separately and alone, crossing paths only out of routine obligation. Meanwhile, Hsiao Kang returns to his job as a watch vendor on the streets of Taipei. One afternoon, a young woman insists on buying a dual-time watch off his wrist for her trip to Paris, and he eventually relents, despite his superstitious belief that it will bring bad luck to them both. His feelings for the watch, tied to his anguish over his absent father and perhaps a hint of longing for its new owner, quietly compels him to reset every clock in the city to Paris time. Inevitably, despite the seemingly fated, intersecting lives of these three lonely and desperate people, the remedy for their emotional void seems indefinably out of reach. The film itself is poetic, generously compassionate, and achingly bittersweet

"A mother, father and son live together in a small apartment in Taipei, but lead very separate lives. The son, Xiao-kang, drifts through life without a job; the mother is an elevator operator having an affair with a man who pirates pornographic movies; and the father pursues illicit pleasures in the city's gay saunas and is on a mission to stop the leaking water from the apartment upstairs. When the son is stricken with an agonizing pain in his neck and shoulders, seemingly from taking an ill-advised dunk in the polluted Tansui River, the family is driven on a quest to alleviate the son's pain." -- Container

"Shiang-chyi runs into Hsiao-kang in a park, where he is sleeping. They start seeing each other and fall in love. In the only line of dialogue in the film she asks him: "Are you still selling watches?" He is not. He is now a porn actor. At the time there is a severe water shortage in the city. Shiang-chyi is filling empty plastic bottles with water from restrooms--Hsiao-kang is sneaking into the city's water reservoirs to bathe. The city encourages the drinking of watermelon juice in place of water."

The River ( visu )
1 edition published in 2005 in Chinese and held by 1 library worldwide
Hsiao-Kang lives in a Taipei apartment with his parents ... they rarely speak to each other and lead distant, separate lives. His mother works as an elevator attendant, his retired father seeks illicit pleasures in the city's gay saunas, and Hsiao-Kang just drifts through life occasionally taking work as a movie extra. While playing a floating corpse in a film, Hsiao-Kang develops a terrible pain in his neck. An endless stream of healers are not able to cure him, and the pain begins to drive him mad. An audacious look at the erosion of the family, The River is also a probing, poetic story about hope amidst urban despair. Silent and alienated, Tsai's characters express themselves through their bodily woes, environmental malaise and repetitive gestures
