VIFF: The Great Buddha

 A sensational debut feature, this black comedy is a droll, cynical tale about a couple of (hardly) working men who come across some compromising dashcam footage of a corrupt businessman. Funny but pointed, the film slyly undercuts all the sacred cows in modern Taiwan. Winner of 5 Golden Horse Awards and 5 Awards (including the Grand Prize) at the Taipei Film Festival. Convulsively funny, yet uncompromising. In Mandarin with English subtitles
