Astonishingly complex, melodramatic, seductive and nuanced, this third gay feature from director Simon Chung (End of Love, Innocent) is cleverly structured and unpredictable. As it unwinds, it will render you speechless.A young man of Western European appearance, (known mostly throughout the film as �the foreigner,� and played by Pierre-Mathieu Vital), is found naked on the banks of a river, in a small picturesque town in southern China. He�s an unusual case for the police. Aside from having no ID, he's also unable to speak. Unsure what to do with him, they hand him over to a doctor at a local hospital for tests. Here, he meets Jiang, (Gao Qilun) a caring, handsome twenty-something nurses� aide who brings him homemade steamed buns, and starts to create a bond. As the silent foreigner is about to be transported to a mental institution, Jiang, risking everything, whisks him away on the back of his scooter to his uncle's countryside home. As feelings and emotions are unlocked, Jiang accidentally stumbles upon the identity of the foreigner whose past is filled with impossible love, revenge, and betrayal. Chung�s assuredly crafted Speechless, with its strong cast, ethereal setting and intricately woven storyline, is not to be missed. Love can speak louder than words.
