Synopsis This is a story tributes to the losers. 72-year-old Taylor is a depressed and unsuccessful veteran actor. His acting is excellently meticulous, yet the camera has never be fond of him. His talent is only be seen by his wife Luna - she is his only and eternal fan. In the morning of the forty-third anniversary of their marriage, Luna has not woken up anymore. Taylor suddenly lost the pivot of the life that he is living in. As usual, he sleeps beside her and watches with her the old series he once involved in. However, Luna has never woken up still, and the pool of dead water under her bed is getting bigger and bigger. Tyler could no longer disguise himself from the truth that Luna has left him. While he is holding two packs of carbon home and ready to commit suicide, he crashes into the two thieves who are about to kidnap the child in the neighborhood. Taylor readily takes a "God is love" flyer and disguises himself as a priest. He decided to enter the apartment to resolve the crisis. Out of the blue, he finds that the two thieves are big dreamers with aspirations. The story is even going more absurb and bizarre by then...

Remarks shared after Festival visit


“Shortshorts is a film festival that focuses on short films and young creative artists. The film selection tends to be commercial. Many new directors who are preparing for their feature film from all over the world have attended this festival. In view of the common difficulties regarding resources, livelihoods and creative spaces, directors from around the world have adopted different ways to deal with these difficulties, while these tactics also brought new inspirations among directors.

A discussion on the wide range of cultural differences between Japanese and Hong Kong productions were brought during the conversation with the Japanese local directors and actors. We did learn from each other regarding the respective creative techniques we apply to filming. There are also quite a number of local diehard fans for Hong Kong films in Japan, which did really bring us a lot of encouragements.”

Shared by Wong Chun, director of GOOD TAKE, after attending Shortshorts Film Festival & Asia 2015 in Japan, under the sponsorship of NAE.
