Fluffy Rhapsody

Just as the circumstances which force Kundera's "The Unbearable Lightness of Beings” womanizing Czech surgeon to flee the Russian invasion reveal a passion for the flesh from a unique perspective, Fluffy Rhapsody's Wan allows the tiny aches and pains of getting old and the fear of death transform his daily activities of job-searching, having sex, pulling his teeth, cheating and idling. Wan is a medical school drop nearing his 30s who starts a relationship with an interesting and puzzling high school girl, Meow-Meow - who claims to be a lesbian. The unspeakable pain of life is represented in this film as "fluff" -somehow light and ephemeral. The film is also a voyage in search of the self. Wan claims, "I've tried to throw out my real self. However, I always feel thirsty and drink lots of water. Day after day, I keep swallowing my real self." Each frame of this film embodies this ephemeral mood through multi-layered music, poetic dialogue and amazing images connected by over exposure, jump-cut and dazzling fades in and out of black. Fluffy Rhapsody treats the banal with a strong dose of fantasy.
