The Story of the Stone

Director: Starr Wu

Cast: Jr Ji, Aric Chen, Golden Elephant

Taiwan, 2018

 

The story has been adapted from the classical novel of the same name, adapting the characters and events from the original story to life at the Red House in Taipei’s Ximending area.

The film avoids focusing on moral issues and in making any judgments. It displays an honest and natural depiction. It depicts gay life in Taipei and discovers a darker side to Taipei, as well as exploring despair, reincarnation and hope.
