Artemisia, aka, Ai Tsao, the Chinese name of a 58-years-old woman who looks like any other ordinary housewife in Taiwan: playing Tai-chi in the morning, picking up English words by words with her son. But one day, she gradually realizes her filial son is actually gay, and her daughter returns home from abroad with an illegitimate daughter! Extremely rare and fare portrayal of how the family deals with a gay son, with no over-the-top stereotypes nor moral degrade, ARTEMISIA resembles more of Ang Lee’s early Taiwanese films with a deep understanding of the complexity of Chinese culture. After all, life has to go on.
