A young man in Taipei, claiming that a strange soul has taken over his body, returns to the care of his father (Jimmy Wang Yu, a star of martial arts films in the 1960s and '70s), who lives atop a remote mountain and doesn't seem too normal himself. This Taiwanese feature might be described as a horror-comedy, though it's more eerie than scary and more peculiar than funny. Whatever it is, the movie certainly keeps you on your toes with its plot twists, suspense sequences, and unconventional editing patterns. This marks a radical change of pace for writer-director Chung Mong-Hong, whose previous feature, The Fourth Portrait (2010), was a 400 Blows-like drama about a ten-year-old orphan. I was fascinated by the movie's quirky inventiveness, but it's likely an acquired taste. In Mandarin with subtitles.
