Who is he? What is his name? Where is he from? Why can’t he explain? And why on earth was he naked in a river near a village in southern China? The police are mystified by the strange young Westerner who refuses to talk. They send him to a hospital where a nursing assistant named Jiang takes him under his wing—and helps him escape the day he’s due to be transferred to a mental institution. Jiang takes the mysterious man to his home village for some rest and gradually discovers his dangerous secrets. After studying in Toronto, Simon Chung (Innocent, The End of Love) returned to his native Hong Kong where he made his mark on the indie film scene. In this work, he boldly and masterfully explores the topic of homosexuality in China. At once a tender and melancholy testimony, an unabashed romance and an enigmatic thriller that keeps its secrets carefully guarded, Speechless is further enhanced by the evocative camera work of Chan Chi Lap and the convincing, captivating performances of Pierre-Mathieu Vital and Gao Qilun.
