Synopsis:
A four-time award winner at the Festival, master Tsai Ming-Liang (Goodbye, Dragon Inn; What Time Is It Over There?) returns with a sumptuously staged, boldly visual film about a Taiwanese filmmaker who casts French actors in his latest disaster-fraught film—despite not speaking a word of French. An artistic tip of the hat to FranÇois Truffaut and the spirit of the New Wave, Face stars Truffaut regulars Jean-Pierre LÉaud and Fanny Ardant.
