Screen/Society--"Three Makes A Whole" (2019) | Zero Chou
"Three Makes A Whole"
(Zero Chou, 2019, 96 min, Taiwan, Mandarin w/ English subtitles, Color, DCP)
This sly tribute to legendary Taiwanese filmmaker Liu Li-li portrays Liu as a young woman finding her narrative voice in stage and film while juggling romance with a married director. Zero Chou preserves the soap opera theatrics of 1970s romantic sentimentalism, but infuses them with a queer sensibility which defiantly proclaims that three is sometimes better than two.
