Well, in some ways, Angela (played by Christine Ko) is a proxy for both me and my sister.

So I thought it was a little bit more realistic and a little bit more interesting to have it be a father-daughter relationship.

And it became clear pretty early on that this would be a drama, the sort of restrained drama I had seen in Taiwanese films like “Yi Yi” [by Edward Yang] and “A City of Sadness” [from Hou Hsiao-hsien].

That sort of measured drama without melodrama, being able to express a broad range of emotions without resorting to sentimentality.

I guess you could see it as a pivot, but it wasn’t a conscious one in my mind.
