Synopsis

 

The director reminisces wistfully on the homosexual relationships he formed during his military service. Like pages torn from a diary, his cinematic voiceover monologue touches on themes of childhood and family, and is imbued with a soft and sunny melancholy revealing his intimate childhood memories and pessimistic fatalism.

 

Director’s note

 

I have lost contact with those people I met in the military. Sometimes we’re going to somewhere or just staying in the little wet army room in my dreams. This is a documentary of my emotional fragments in 2012. And when I finished this film, I’ve almost forgotten everything.

Film Review

 

The filmmaker, who comes from an average Taiwanese family, constantly tries to understand in this cinematic monologue how it all began. The video archives of his childhood are shown like pages torn from a diary. A diary peppered with a series of drawings that express with a certain violence when the images and off-camera sounds are enshrouded in a soft and sunny melancholy.

Like the child he reveals to us, both innocent and fragile when he shows himself in front of his mother’s camera, the filmmaker daydreams about what kind of man he would like to be within the extremely controlling society that has placed him among the invisible.
