2 out of 5 stars
A pushy Taiwanese journalist (Hu) pesters a German video artist (Busch) about the death of the latter’s lover (Ke); flashbacks reveal that the late girlfriend may have been the victim of foul play. Meanwhile, amid clumsily delivered come-ons and crudely sketched culture clashes, a relationship develops between the reporter and her subject. Did we mention the supernatural aspect? Monika Treut (Female Misbehavior) has made a fruitful career out of documenting nonfiction gender studies and LGBT anthropology, but her attempt at exploring such issues in a narrative context is clunky to a fault.
