YesAsia Editorial Description

In 2015, documentary filmmaker Huang Hsin Yao's acclaimed black-and-white short film The Great Buddha was crowned Best Short Film at the 2015 Taipei Film Festival. Two years later, the director expands the suspense story into his first narrative feature The Great Buddha+. Produced and lensed by Chung Mong Hong, the film won five awards at the Golden Horse Film Awards, including Best New Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Supporting Actor for Bamboo Chen. Mostly presented in black and white with select dashes of color, The Great Buddha+ weaves an unpredictable satire-laden black comedy of crime and misadventure.

Pickle (Cres Chuang) barely makes ends meet working as a night-shift security guard at a bronze statue factory. He and his buddy Belly Button (Bamboo Chen), a recycling collector by day, pass the hours by flipping through adult magazines and watching TV in the security room. When the TV breaks down, the two decide to watch something else: their sleazy boss's (Leon Dai) salacious dash-cam footage. They accidentally come upon a dangerous secret that throws their lives into chaos and triggers a preposterous chain of events.

Product Information

Pickle is a night security guard at a bronze statue factory, who also plays in a band at the funerals when time allows. Earning a meager income, Pickle lives with his elderly mother. His best friend Belly Button works as a recycling collector during the day, and Pickle’s biggest pleasure in life is flicking through the porn magazines Belly Button collects in the small hours in the security room. Having late night snacks and watching television are an integral part of their dull lives. One day when the television is broken, their lives are changed forever.

At first, they watch the footages recorded on their boss’s dash cam for fun, and soon they get addicted to peeping into the boss’s colorful private life and accidently discover the boss’s unspeakable secret. As a result, a ridiculour chain reaction is triggered, and even the statue of Buddha, ready to be sent to the religious festival, is forced to play a role in this chaotic situation.

The story involves gods, the middle-aged men’s sexual desire and the conversation between ghosts and humans. Maybe the audience will find it preposterous, but isn’t life itself a farce?
