Pickle is a night security guard at a bronze statue factory. His colleague, Belly Bottom, works as a recycling collector during the day, and Pickle's biggest pleasure in life is flicking through the porn magazines Belly Bottom collects in the small hours in the security room. Having late night snacks and watching television are an integral part of their dull lives. One day when the television is broken, their lives are changed forever. The story involves gods, the middle-aged men's sexual desire and the conversation between ghosts and humans.
Bonus Features: The Great Buddha short film, Making-of, Trailer Taiwan’s Entry for Best Foreign-Language Film at the 91st OSCARS® Underlining the gap between have-nots' lives and elites' world by switching between black and white and glamorous colors, THE GREAT BUDDHA+ vividly illustrates a corrupted village in rural southern Taiwan with memorable style, heartfelt empathy, and whimsical humor. Security guard Pickle and his trash collector friend Belly Button kill time together in night shifts watching the American-educated boss's dash-cam recordings of his various sexual encounters with women. Against the buddies’ will, something horrifying rather than erotic reveals. “Humor, a perennial scarcity in the self-serious world of art-house cinema, is in pleasingly abundant supply in Taiwanese director Huang Hsin-yao’s The Great Buddha+” — Jordan Cronk, Film Comment “...the most important film from Taiwan since Yi Yi (Edward Yang).” — Look Chi Man, HK01 Winner, NETPAC, Toronto International Film Festival 5 wins, 10 nominations, Taiwan Golden Horse Awards Palm Springs International Film Festival New Directors New Films Audio: Original DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1, Original Dolby Digital 2.0, Aspect Ratio: 1.85:1 (16:9 Widescreen) Disclaimer: All rights of the producer and of the owner of the work reproduced are reserved.
