YesAsia Editorial Description

Acclaimed Taiwan director Chen Hung-I (Candy Rain) leads audiences on a surreal journey through the wonderland of all things lost in his sophomore feature Honey Pupu. Selected by film festivals in France, Sweden, Korea, Hong Kong, Canada, and the United States, the whimsical youth romance explores themes of life, love, and loss in a poetic film language blending lavish imagery with a hauntingly beautiful score. Lending commercial appeal to this philosophical tale of being is an exciting cast of young talents that includes Lin Zaizai (Taipei Exchanges), Lollipop idol Prince (L-O-V-E), Circus's Kid, Nikki Hsieh (Make Up), and Peggy Tseng (Parking), with renowned stylist Lee Ta Chi making his acting debut. Bold, stylish, and entrancing, Chen's latest film was awarded Best Director, Best Actress (for Nikki Hsieh), Best Cinematography, and Best Music at the 13th Taipei Awards.

The website missing.com/ing has attracted a large number of disoriented young netizens to join in the discussions about disappearance. On New Year's Eve, the popular site's webmaster Dog (Lee Ta Chi) has mysteriously vanished without a trace. His radio DJ girlfriend Vicky (Peggy Tseng) looks for him fervently, during which she comes in contact with a bunch of eccentric people that frequent Dog's chatroom - high-schooler Cola (Prince), the rebellious Assassin (Kid) and his purple-haired girlfriend Money (Lin Zaizai). Together with enigmatic seductress Playing (Nikki Hsieh), the group traverses the dreamy landscape of urban Taipei in search of forgotten memories, forsaken places, and departed loves.

2-Disc Deluxe Edition DVD comes with special features: director and cast interviews, missing scenes, behind-the-scenes footage, and music video.

Abstract Visual Musings (Part A) Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
“Honey Pupu” is a surreal-abstract film about fleeting moments, alienated feelings and the transience of the changing city of Taipei (where railway stations and a Tower Record store become ‘ghosts’ of the past) with disillusioned and uncertain young outsiders struggling with their inner awareness that everything in life will sooner or later disappear. A dreamlike film of myriad, gentle chaotic imagery via pop art, superimposed into natural surroundings of clouds, greenery and the changing city of Taipei. To hold onto memories and experience, or attempts to re-capture them, technologies such as the mobile phone, photo camera and music are used throughout as a catalyst of the young to capture forms of infinity. All this surreal navel gazing (still having the form of a navel of course), begins on a New Years Eve 2010 where classical radio DJ Vicky (Peggy Tseng) searches for her lost lover Dog (Ta Chi Lee), a webmaster who ups and goes but leaves his ‘memories’ on a single floppy disk. Vicky, a photographer, searches on Dog’s web site chat room encountering his friends; other ‘lost’ and confused souls similarly reflecting Vicky’s mind set about sudden disappearance, angst, uncertainty, disillusionment and change. In the cyber space Vicky encounters Cola (Prince) who falls for punky drummer girl Cheesecake (a.k.a. Money) who collects metal hexagonal screws relating to her worries about the possible extinction of bees. Money is the girlfriend of angsty Assassin (Kid), who finds life a tumult of confusion and irritation. Then there’s sexual deviant Playing (Nikki Hsieh), who like a cynical succubus, lures men into foolish sex games who then decide to kill themselves. Playing though finds loving solace in angsty boy Assassin.

Aside to synopsis this is a more visual ‘youth’ film with a final dream sequence similar to Pang Bros “Recycle” and muses symbolically about lost relationships, the meaning of life and world’s end (well if matter returns to energy it doesn’t disappear), centrally orchestrated and mirrored in plastic dream realities out of Vicky’s concern about the disappearance of her lover Dog. The disconnected ‘I have no identity’ youth share romantic brittleness like the triangle love of Money, Assassin and Cola (the latter staying at an aunts and two girl cousins who speak in a technological Chinese hybrid lingo similar to text speak). But all have a common bond circling the central Vicky that the world, too, disappears like everything else.

In the beginning there’s…honey? (Part B) Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
In the beginning as children we’re one with the world, but requirement makes us abstractedly confused. Technology obsesses our emotions, circumvents our natural passions and we dazedly wonder about ourselves more than ever. “Honey Pupu” does seem pretentious. But its funny how art life can be disfavoured by similitude to pretension; most forms of theatre are pretensions with actors, singers, dancers all pretending to be aspects of something or someone else. And sometimes I consider my own pretensions. But when are we who we really are? Afraid of the ‘self’ disappearing (or not even having one) and even the Whole World (an important grain of sand in the ocean cosmos) is cosmetically mused in this film. All of us are fragments of each other – only finding a completely different reality and copying its pattern could herald a form of self-uniqueness. Does the world end? Nope. But some pedestrian emphasis on destructive and transmutation aspects of nature sadden people in this movie (like the elephant scared of a mouse). If a loved one disappears…

Although “Honey Pupu” is exaggerated pretence with visual advertisement /pop video surrealism, there's something in everything to glean. Always ideas are revealed by any mental construction, even derivative pretence or posture (strike a pose stuff). Maybe at the Beginning/End there’s nothing, and in the middle a complex activity of life interplay, but if the young of this film portrayed are a nonsense vacuous excuse at Taiwanese youth complex, they’ve a lot of substance to ignite thought and wonder and even if “HP” is rubbish its mirroring other ‘clever’ second hand ‘trash’ with style. Only movies portraying nothing would be passionless - silence. But inertia soon fuels chaotic passion into meaningful (electrified) by roads towards new heightened emotions and tension. (Only true boredom makes people seem like idiots!) “Honey Pupu” albeit as pop idiom, cries out (pretentiously) about people’s emotional changes of losing things that are hard to humanly accept and how as humans we wish everything nice to stay as it is. But changes (strongly evolved in youth) are rearrangements within infinity to unfreeze boredom and loneliness into new relationships and adventure. Like light that always is. Money plays her drums loudly to drown out thoughts of the void’s silence. But maybe the void is conscious of that and the motions of life are a film fixed to a script. If you think this sounds weird, try “Honey Pupu”.
