Synopsis

故事大綱

在一次告別親友的儀式,綿綿逐漸表現出不尋常舉動,身體與意識之間逐漸的割裂,令她不尋常的,是靈。不同的記憶、意識、身份、行為在綿綿中徘徊不定,與廢了雙腿的男友、心理醫生建構一個特殊的關係網。 一個身體,綿綿與靈之間精神上的交感,使她們遊走於「羅酆山」,看見水順流而去,建構不同的情境與想像,探勘意識,是一個超於物外,回歸自然,進入一片無名以狀的水墨旅程。 綿綿與靈打開一道門,進入一個處境,走向另外一個世界。 「羅酆山是地獄,地獄是現世。」

In a farewell ceremony for a friend of the family, Cotton acts abnormally because of Ling. Her body and her consciousness are separating. Different memories, consciousnesses, identities and actions are lingering inside Cotton, which collaborates the unusual relationship between herself, her lame boyfriend and her psychiatrist. There is the one body, in which Cotton and Spirit (Ling) connect with each other spiritually and which leads them wandering the “Luo Feng Mountain”. There is water flowing downstream which constitutes different scenes and imageries, delving into the consciousness. It presents something that is beyond substance. It returns them to nature and begins an indescribable journey of Chinese ink painting. Cotton and Ling are opening a door, into a situation that entering another world — The Bardo. “Luo Feng Mountain is the Underworld. The Underworld is our secular."
