Past Lives (2023)

The film encompasses the beautifully painful feeling of longing for something that you could have had; a story that you couldn't bring to an end, a devastating what if? while simultaneously conveying the immigrant experience.

The Half of It (2020)

A small-town suburban queer love triangle with an accurate depiction of how a romance can blossom over text. Just the sharing of ideas and passions can be the building blocks of love.

The Worst Person in The World (2021)

Julie feels like the worst person in the world, she is lost and does not know what she wants, and, in her indecision, she lands up hurting the people she loves the most. The confusion, the guilt, the attraction, the comfort, the film empathetically treats its protagonist as she goes through the experience of falling in love, falling out of love and falling in love again.

Manmarziyaan (2018)

A traditional love triangle in terms of narrative but the peculiar characters the complex emotions are handled in a mature way. Delving into the emotional landscape of being young, wild and in love and the transition from that to a more mature real world.

96 (2018)

"Are you happy?"

"I'm content."

A bittersweet romance, a lost childhood love, feeling of acute nostalgia.

Blue Gate Crossing (2002)

A beautiful exploration of the confusion of the teenage years. A search for your own self, identifying feelings that you can't put into words, heartbreak that you can't express.

Fallen Angels (1995)

A fine example of 'Déjà Disparu' of the new Hong Kong Cinema. With a discontinuous blurry visual language, and schizophrenic identity in flux. Characters madly in love with someone who could never return their feelings.
