Item Description

In this critically-acclaimed, absurdist comedy from Malaysian New Wavefilmmaker James Lee, the effects of alienation and consumerism in anincreasingly mechanized modern world spiral out of control. Teoh (Loh BakLai), a working stiff, is forced to buy a second-hand washing machine, which quickly breaks down. After multiple calls to customer service, and through some surreal narrative logic, a young woman (or the embodiment of his temperamental washing machine) arrives and becomes his live-in maid, whom heexploits and rents out to demented strangers. An absurdist allegory on the perils of secondhand ownership...contains Bunuelian flourishes aplenty" (David Ng Village Voice). In Mandarin and Cantonese with English subtitles.
