Storyline

The titular boy in the moonlight is actually the young spirit of a man, who has been in a kind of vegetative state for the last 30 years. The tortured spirit wanders in that earthly space between heaven and hell, himself exploring the why of his tragic fate. His wanderings take him into the lives of those in his family who hover over and care for his sleeping broken body.

A Taiwanese 'Sixth Sense'
24 June 2000 | by ozuSee all my reviews

I happened to see this movie the same day I saw 'The Sixth Sense' and its remarkable how similar they are in theme, only where 'Sixth Sense' seemed ham-fisted and obvious, this film is subtle, intelligent and constantly surprising. Every time you think you've figured out what is going on, something else happens to throw you - so I won't go into too much detail and leave it to you to experience.
