A MAN AND A WOMAN 男歡女愛
UN HOMME ET UNE FEMME

A man and a woman meet by accident on a Sunday evening at their children’s boarding school, slowly finding out that they are both a widow/widower. They prefer revealing anything personal gently so that they could hide themselves with a misperception. They become close friends gradually, then she realises that her memory of her deceased husband is too strong for her to love anyone. As they go about their day, words are heard and told in action.

週日晚上,男人和女人在孩子們的寄宿學校偶遇,閒談間發現對方與自己一樣喪偶。二人一方面想與對方靠得更親近,另一方面聊天時避重就輕,盡量避免太快透露太多私隱,讓對方沉浸在似有若無的虛幻錯覺中,彷彿在以言語探戈。正當他們情投意合之際,女人對離世丈夫的回憶仍然歷歷在目,使她無法再愛其他人。隨著時間推移,此刻無聲勝有聲。
