Synopsis Hsiao-kang’s father has died, he and his mother are the dutiful mourners; later, the woman thinks she has recognised him incarnated in a passing cockroach. Hsiao sells watches in the street. A girl on her way to Paris has just bought him one. From then on, Hsiao changes all the clocks in Taipei to French time. The connection between them becomes magical: he buys “The 400 blows”, she meets Jean-Pierre Leaud in a Parisian cemetery. In Hsiao’s home, his mother’s obsession with holding on to her husband’s spirit has drawn her to board up the windows.
