Fang Tong

A cloud of exhaust from an idling Mercedes is illuminated by blue floodlights in this evocative scene. A young woman in a short white nightgown stands in the doorway. Is she glaring in anger at the man behind the wheel, or simply trying to get his attention? In either case, he seems to either not notice her, or is actively ignoring her pleas. He looks away from her, out the window, as if waiting for someone else. The cloud of smoke seems an apt metaphor for a smoldering romance — or an incendiary family quarrel.
