DGC@Home: DAYS (Begins September 17)

The great Taiwanese filmmaker Tsai Ming-liang has been directing exquisite examinations of alienation, isolation, and the fleeting beauty of human connection featuring his muse Lee Kang-sheng for decades. His latest film, DAYS, will undoubtedly stand as one of his best, sparest, and most intimate works. Lee once again stars as a variation on himself, wandering through a lonely urban landscape and seeking treatment in Hong Kong for a chronic illness; at the same time, a young Laotian immigrant working in Bangkok, played by Anong Houngheuangsy, goes about his daily routine. These two solitary men eventually come together in a moment of healing, tenderness, and sexual release. Among the most cathartic entries in Tsai’s filmography, DAYS is a work of longing, constructed with the director’s customary brilliance at visual composition and shot through with profound empathy.

Critics:

“A profound, meditative poem on the human need for connection.”

– Little White Lies

 

“A quietly aching stunner from one of our great filmmakers. Gorgeously sensual. With DAYS, Tsai Ming-Liang has made something exquisite and rare: an elegiac, autumnal work that also feels like an artistic breakthrough.”

– LA Times

 

“Pure rapture.”

– Film Comment
