There's little dialogue in most of this absorbing biography-drama hybrid by Singapore filmmaker Eric Khoo. It has three intersecting fictional story lines—a shopkeeper is haunted by his wife's ghost, a security guard spends hours alone, sometimes stalking a glamorous executive who works in the building, and a teenager finds first love through an Internet chat room—and these characters' silence reflects their apartness. Significantly, the words of the real-life protagonist, Theresa Chan, a deaf, formerly mute memoirist who learned to speak English and read braille on a U.S. scholarship, link them as they confront their loneliness. This elliptical, poetic movie is filled with yearning, humor, and warmth. In English and subtitled Mandarin, Cantonese, and Hokkien. 90 min.
