This Taiwanese film has a random element; projectionists can show the reels in any sequence they choose -- which echoes the indecision displayed by characters in the film. Dennis Potter overtones also surface since another device used here is a Potter-like film-within-the-film: Movie producer A-gua (David Wang) is working on a film titled <I>Blue Moon</I>, directed by Ko Yi-cheng. Yi-fang (pop performer Tarcy Su), who works in a flower shop, has a secret admirer -- A-gua. Divorced writer Chuen-shu (Leon Dai) hangs out at the Blue Moon bar-restaurant, run by Luo-an (Teddy Lo), who tells Yi-fang that she must choose between Chuen-shu and A-gua. Since the reels can be seen in any order, then don't the credits interfere with such a free-form structure? No -- because they're slipped into the film-within-the-film. Shown at 1997 film festivals (London, Vancouver).
