YesAsia Editorial Description

Xiao Zhun's world is like the elevator she operates in a department store: static, polite, low-key. When she catches her boyfriend cheating on her, the shy girl decides to find a better home for her pet blowfish. A lonely baseball coach purchases the blowfish at an Internet auction. When Xiao Zhun takes the blowfish across town to his trashed house, where he's waiting for his runaway wife, they make passionate love in the surreal blue light of his aquarium. They live together like husband and wife – until one day, the man finally wants to learn this girl's real name. In her feature acting debut, Vicci Pan exposes the vulnerability of love in this erotically charged romance drama from acclaimed writer-director Lee Chi Yuarn (Beautiful Crazy).

Where art the satisfying co-habitat? Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Certain movie plot/protagonists are more relevant to certain viewers and “Blowfish”, a sketch of Xiao-Zhun (Zhi Min Pan) a young fragile woman miffed at the men she shares her life with, is maybe more relevant to women in their twenties concerned about committable futures. As a metaphorical parallel, the resilient blowfish, subject to its given environment and happiness, becomes the central musing for Xiao-Zhun’s quite melancholic outlook on life. Why is her pet needle blowfish not eating the food Xiao-Zhun puts her, whereas her lorry driver boyfriend eats her food with gusto? (But bored with their sex life as he visits ‘Internet auctions’ on a shared computer). Xiao-Zhun also works as a ‘mechanical’ store elevator assistant, complying with her Corporation’s smile-with-precision-techniques to shoppers and business people alike. Xiao-Zhun though one day changes her shift with a colleague and arriving home early finds her fella ‘sleeping’ with another woman (probably one he found from his Internet ‘auction’ sites). Instead of using a blow torch on her hunky one’s nether regions (thank God Xiao-Zhun didn’t keep Piranhas), shy Xiao-Zhun simply smiles in her professional manner at the betrayal, casually auctions off her pet blowfish on the Internet (well, if you can’t beat ‘em…) and scoops her fish into a polythene bag as she sets off on a long bus journey to the pastoral rurals, leaving boyfriend and his new conquest behind. After travelling Xiao-Zhun meets a baseball coach she’d auctioned her blowfish to. As his wife had also left him, the baseball coach takes an interest sexually in Xiao-Zhun and its not long before passion is spent between them. Xiao-Zhun then moves in with the coach, wearing his wife’s summer dresses for lovemaking. But as contentment settles into Xiao-Zhun’s new dreamy life, the baseball coach’s wife returns.

“Blowfish” is symbolic (symmetrical bath scene and snake-winding path Xiao-Zhun travels) of a woman’s uncertainties of human relationships, attested to the un-chosen habitat of a blowfish. But Xiao-Zhun’s sexuality with her country boyfriend is more about being wanted than servitude relationships and her ‘look good and smile’ city job. Sparse on dialogue it’s also a sensual erotic movie without being too explicit and melancholic without being too depressing. Overall a dreamy evocative film that pleases the emotions on good levels and of how sexuality, luxury and indulgence can lead to repetitive boredom on another.
