LOG LINE

On the way back to Ying Ge Hai, two former lovers remain discrete regarding their respective life and tacitly restrict everything to the present… 

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

One afternoon a few years ago, I accidentally ran into my old lover. Although it was a just a little hello, I felt like a stone thrown in the water and my heart rippled gently taking me back to the past.

After that I had the idea of making a story about reunion and farewells. I always asked myself how to tell this story and my mind was never at ease during the whole shooting. Until the shooting was finished and I saw the rushes, I finally felt relieved. All I wanted to say is in the film. Reunion is like an unspeakable farewell.
