Time & Tickets

Kang lives alone in a big house. Through a glass façade, he looks out onto the treetops lashed by wind and rain. He feels a strange pain of unknown origin which he can hardly bear, and which grips his whole body. Non lives in a small apartment in Bangkok where he methodically prepares traditional dishes from his native village. When Kang meets Non in a hotel room, the two men share each other's loneliness.

Tsai Ming-Liang’s new work concludes the exploration he began in JOURNEY TO THE WEST. The images are emanations of slowness and frailty, embodied by the actor Lee Kang-Sheng, with whom the filmmaker has collaborated for years. In DAYS he silently observes the encounter between two men who forget the dark side of reality for one night, and perhaps even get close to the truth, before returning to their daily lives. As always, when Tsai Ming-Liang trains his camera on faces and lights; everything is possible, and the images naturally have multiple meanings. (source:
