Dear My Dear (Film Thoughts: Dear Tenant)

I saw ‘Dear Tenant’ at this year’s Frameline, San Francisco’s Gay and Lesbian Film festival. Cheng Yu-chieh’s film is one of the main films of the festival, and I was happy to support it. And the film starts out well, with a big question in the plot waiting to be answered. In the middle of the whole story is a gay love story, and the film builds its premise around it. The film has great technical aspects – it looks great on screen and is acted well – even if its ‘big reveal’ is a bit underwhelming. But it’s an interesting enough eatch, and establishes Taiwan as a great spource of modern LGBT+ stories.
