Three Times

Three different time periods, 1966, 1911 and 2005. Three different stories and two amazing performances as Shu Qi and Chang Chen play out three enrapturing tales of unfinished love... 1966, a time for love: A young man enlisted for military service falls for a beautiful girl in a 1960s pool hall. But will she wait for him? 1911, a time for freedom: A courtesan in a brothel falls in love with one of her clients, a political activist on the brink of joining the Chinese revolution. 2005, a time for youth: Hidden passions arise when a beautiful bisexual singer becomes involved in a tangled affair with a photographer.
