YesAsia Editorial Description

Taiwan auteur Tsai Ming Liang continues to explore love, lust, and alienation in his brilliant 2006 arthouse drama I Don't Want to Sleep Alone. Premiering at the 64th Venice Film Festival, the film won the CinemAvvenire Award, and went on to screen to much acclaim at festivals around the world. Set in Kuala Lumpur, I Don't Want to Sleep Alone is a return to roots for the Malaysia-born director, though his characteristically gritty and uncompromising portrayals of the best and worst of man resulted in run-ins with Malaysian censors.

Lee Kang Sheng, who has starred in all of Tsai's films, takes on the challenge of two roles this time. He plays both a brain-dead patient cared for by young waitress Chyi (Chen Shiang Chyi from The Wayward Cloud and Goodbye, Dragon Inn) and homeless drifter Hsiao Kang who gets beaten up in the streets by a gang. Rescued by Bangladeshi migrant workers, Hsiao Kang falls into a contentious and ambiguous relationship of desire and yearning with migrant worker Rawang (Norman Atun), Chyi, and Chyi's boss (Pearly Chua).

This two-disc Deluxe Edition comes with a 32-page booklet and bonus features (making of, interviews with director and cast).

流浪漢小康在吉隆坡街頭閒逛,被幾名騙子洗劫,他們發現他身無分文,沒有身分證,甚至言語不通,便將他痛毆一頓。重傷的小康被一群外勞救起,帶回宿舍療養,其中一名叫拉旺的,他在街上撿到一張舊床褥,他讓小康睡進他的蚊帳,在這張撿來的床褥上細心地照顧著這個受傷的身體。不知為何,拉旺心中升起了一種難得的安定及幸福感,是因為他終於擁有了一張床褥嗎?雖然這麼破舊。還是因為從此有人睡在他的身邊?雖然那麼陌生。

茶室的女傭琪琪也在照顧著另外一個身體;長期躺在病床上老闆娘的植物人兒子。琪琪多麼希望趕快脫離這樣的生活。當她在街上遇到了小康,她身體的野性和慾望被他挑撥,她多麼渴望跟他在一起,這才開始發現自己沒有太多的行動自由,而且也找不到一個可以睡在一起的地方。

身體逐漸復原的小康,周旋在拉旺和琪琪之間,像一隻纏人、討喜、又不被約束的野貓,更像一隻隨時會飛走的美麗皇蛾。風韻猶存的老闆娘也在垂涎他年輕的身體,她發現小康的長相,竟然跟她的植物人兒子,越來越像…

同時,突如其來的煙霾開始侵襲這個溼熱、充滿汗臭、流竄著各種膚色人種的城市,而這些情慾男女和一張破舊的床褥,在濃烈的煙霧裡糾纏、迷失,同時相濡以沫…
