Incidental Journeys

In this hour-long 2000 feature from Taiwan, two women meet when one offers the other a ride, and together they visit a farm in the mountains. Director Jofei Chen gracefully unfolds the growing attraction between the pair—a wandering painter with a broken heart and a student who's taking some time off from an affair in the U.S.—as they hike in a misty forest, chat with friends, and agonize over their imminent parting. The tone is languid and melancholy, yet the ending is happy in its own way. In Mandarin with subtitles.
