What does it take to express human emotion? Filmmaker Tsai Ming-liang shows that you can achieve maximum effect with sparing cinematic resources. In Days, two men find comfort in each other before breaking up and moving on with their lives.
“Poignant and intensely moving, Days gestures towards a reconciliation with themes of desire and sexuality that have troubled Tsai’s cinema since the beginning.” – Giovanni Marchini Camia, Sight & Sound
“In Days, the grand master of slow cinema Tsai Ming-liang beats his familiar drum of metropolitan loneliness and alienation. Yet there is also room for tenderness in the Malaysian-Taiwanese director’s most intimate film.” – Jos van der Burg, Filmkrant
