Synopsis

This scintillating DVD box set features four Asian films about love, longing and fishhooks:

The Isle
A film by Kim Ki-Duk. This erotic arthouse thriller tells the tale of a beautiful woman who lives on an eerie, remote lake selling food to fisherman by day, and her body by night. "A perversely intriguing (and intriguingly perverse) love story." -San Francisco Examiner
   
Electric Shadows
A film by Xiao Jiang. From China comes a charming tale of a deliveryman and a young girl's passion for the movies - which re-ignites his own longing for the days when the cinema enchanted China's masses. "Movie love was never so engulfing, and rarely so sweet!" -Time Magazine
   
The Personals
A film by Chen Kuo-fu. An attractive, successful doctor places a personal ad in a newspaper to try to meet Mr. Right. A succession of blind dates ensues, with men who are lonely, desperate, dangerous, perverted or all of the above. "An intensely voyeuristic experience." -Time Out New York
   
Ghosted
A Film by Monika Treut. In this mysterious love story set in Taiwan and Germany, artist Sophie is trying to come to terms with the unsolved murder of her Taiwanese lover Ai-Ling. "An erotically charged, culture-clash thriller." -IFC.com
