This upcoming Taiwanese movie looks really, really good.
A man narrates: People all have secrets they can’t tell anyone. Why not forget those secrets?
A man with the seeming ability to get rid of memories tries to persuade a lady (Shu Qi) to be his next customer. He presents a strange, maggot-ridden device, which is presumably the source of his power.
“Tell me your worries,” he says. “I’ll help you forget them.”
“Wait a second,” she says. She later adds, “I don’t want to forget about them yet.”
The tone of the trailer is quirky and whimsical, presenting an almost dream-like atmosphere of the village where Shu Qi lives.
Starring Shu Qi, Wang Qianyuan, Eric Tsang, and Tony Yang, Village of No Return 健忘村 premieres in 2017.
