Singing lives with her mother on the Taiwanese island of Kinmen. In a constantly recurring dream she meets a man. She can neither recognize him, nor does she understand the words he shouts at her. Singing works on a ferry boat where she meets a young soldier who claims that he will be her boyfriend one day. Initially, she doesn't believe him, but it turns out that he is right. "All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream." This quote by Edgar Allan Poe might well be the motto of Hou Chi Janʼs first feature film. On the narrative level, several dreams overlap and break up the story line as well as the chronology of the film until it appears as if not even the dreamers themselves can be sure at which dramatic stage of the story they are at a given moment. Hou Chi Jan expertly manipulates narrative levels and genre elements. Dream and reality blend into one. "One Day" resembles a poem made of light, color, water and emotion, telling a melancholy love story in modern-day Taiwan.

Don't give up your today for the unknown future...

A fantastic story and cinematography! I enjoyed every second of this strange and calm movie. The main point of the movie is even if the person happens to know his/her future, he'she is not going to give up the any second of happiness to avoid the consequences... Really touching and intriguing little story...

In the middle there was a point I stopped the movie, and started thinking for myself 'hmm... what's going on, now he knows her, she doesn't know him, and it began like she knew him and he didn't know her, which is the dream? which is the reality? what time is it now?' As I analyzed and collected in my mind all the details I knew for the moment, I just pushed play, as all I came up with were the collection of facts I had seen until the moment was stopped. And then the answers just flowed into my head with the beautiful scenes and dialogues (which by the way are rare in this movie)... Also the best characteristic of this movie is that the events are in wrong and chaotic chronological order... which makes you think and think and give freedom to your imagination... Which part is the dream? When is the past, the future, the present? Who's going to disappear in thin air? Is going to make the decision? Is anything going to change? So many questions...

Fantastic movie, really... I hope I'd do the same as the main female lead...

Even though this movie was slow, it was one of the best movies I have ever watched. I loved it. The story was amazing. The actors/actresses did the best job in their roles. The music fit perfectly. I will watch this over and over. I don't know if others will enjoy it as much as I did b/c it is very different from what is expected. When I read the synopsis I had a totally different pic of what would happen. I am glad that my imagination was not as well thought out as the actual movie. Enjoy this movie w/ an open mind b/c it is not filled w/ action or drawn out in drama fashion. I have to put this one on my fave list.
