[热带雨]


As Mandarin-language teacher Ling (Yeo Yann Yann) continues with fruitless IVF treatment while taking care of her ailing father-in-law, she finds herself slowly drawn toward a promising student who seems to have been abandoned by his parents. Outside it's monsoon season, but Ling's inner turmoil looks set to get her into a heap of trouble. Director Anthony Chen (ILO ILO) brings this simmering Singapore-set drama to a boiling point while using an associative and poetic editing rhythm, repeating colors and shapes to highlight the small parallels that link people and reveal the profound in lovely and subtle ways. With uniformly sensitive performances from the returning cast of ILO ILO, Chen's WET SEASON is a classy and well-measured teacher-student drama that will have you weeping. Winner, Best Leading Actress (Yeo Yann Yann), 2019 Golden Horse Film Festival; Winner, Best Screenplay, 2019 Torino Film Festival. Official Selection, 2019 Toronto, London and Mumbai film festivals; 2020 Palm Springs, Göteborg and Moscow film festivals.
