The Hole - Virtual Screenings

Friday, September 4, 2020

Set just prior to the start of the 21st century, this vaguely futuristic story follows two residents of a quickly crumbling building who refuse to leave their homes in spite of a virus that has forced the evacuation of the area. As rain pours down relentlessly, a single man is stuck with an unfinished plumbing job and a hole in his floor. This results in a very odd relationship with the woman who lives below him. Combining deadpan humor with an austere view of loneliness and a couple of unexpected musical numbers, Tsai Ming-Liang crafted one of the most original films of the 1990s, finally receiving a full-length US theatrical release. NR / 89 min. Mandarin w/ subtitles. "One of the ten best films of 1999…Tsai's most distilled, droll, deftly realized allegory." – J. Hoberman, Village Voice “The most memorable fusion of song, dance and weather since Singin’ in the Rain.” – Dennis Lim, Village Voice
