Synopsis

A conversation between Taiwanese auteur ​​Tsai Ming-Liang and his muse, Lee Kang-sheng, the actor who has appeared in all of his films, and with whom he now shares a mountainside home. Tsai does most of the talking, musing on their collaboration, spirituality, mortality and queer identity.

MUBI's take

Don’t mistake this magnificent documentary for marginalia in the careers of Tsai Ming-liang and Lee Kang-sheng. Fit to burst with warmth and tenderness, Afternoon hosts a conversation between the great filmmaker and his muse with exacting formal rigour. It’s one of the great love stories in cinema.
