The Great Buddha+(bc Sunday)
Pickle is a night security guard at a bronze statue factory, who also plays in a funeral band when time allows. His best friend Belly Button works as a recycling collector during the day and their biggest pleasure in life is flicking through the porn magazines Belly Button collected in the small hours in the security room. One day when the TV is broken, their lives are change forever. The story involves gods, the middle-aged men’s sexual desire and the conversation between ghosts and humans. Maybe the audience will find it preposterous, but isn’t life itself a farce? The most anticipated Taiwanese film of the year is an extension of Huang Hsin-Yao's 2014 award-winning short, The Great Buddha. It has won 5 awards in the 54th Golden Horse Awards, including Best New Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.
