In his feature film debut, Taiwanese writer and director Lien Chien-Hung helms a beautifully rendered study of a woman seeking love and companionship. A chicken farmer by trade, Lin Hui-Jun develops feelings for a French man, Martin, whom she only knows via the internet. While everyone around her is convinced it’s a scam, she longs to believe otherwise. Her journey outside of Taiwan to meet Martin is about more than just romance, it’s finally a chance at self-discovery. Esther Liu portrays Hui-Jun with deeply felt nuance, allowing a tender vulnerability in her character. Gorgeously lensed by Ching-Yao Liao, Salli is a smart and perceptive study of what it means to believe in love.
