Romance | Drama Language: Mandarin Directed by: James Lee Duration: 12 min Camera: Panasonic DVX100 2005 The laundry girl & motorcycle girl are best friends since childhood. Over the years their relationship has slightly changed. The laundry girl is two-timing her boyfriend, the motorcycle girl continues to help keep it a secret. The motorcycle girl remains single and the laundry girl continues her search for true love. Or maybe due to some unforseen circumstances the girls will continue to keep their real feelings from each other and remain best friends. Director's Notes "This may be the only short film of mine that deals with love that is inspired by some of the Taiwanese cinema in that time. Instead of casting professional actors, I casts my filmmaker friends to play the parts. Notably Tan Chui Mui, Mien Lor, Yap Kok Choong and Jimmy Choong. During that period a lot of collaborations and crossover in the works between the local independent filmmakers. The short film examines the tense relationship between the two best friends with minimal dialogues and back story.
