TWILIGHT’S KISS (SUK SUK) presents the story of two closeted married men in their twilight years. One day Pak, 70, a taxi driver who refuses to retire, meets Hoi, 65, a retired single father, in a park. Following their brief encounter, something is unleashed within them that has been suppressed for years due to societal and personal pressure. As both men recount their personal histories, one’s filled with pride for their family and hard work through the years, they also contemplate a possible future together. This quiet, introspective feature crafts a moving backdrop of life as it has been in Hong Kong, and the struggle between conventional morals and their personal desires. Introduction by Caren Freeman (UVA).
