Simultaneously lovely and calculated, Keeping Watch seduces the viewer while also challenging them to suspend their disbelief. Set in lovely rural Taiwan, the film concerns Ching (Haden Kuo), a quirky young woman who runs her father’s clock shop all by her lonesome. The shop is located next to the railroad tracks, but Ching never rides the rail, because many years ago, her mother got on the train and never came back. Since then her father has been a dopey drunk, who’s always waking up to ask if his wife has returned. Ching has given up all hope that such a thing will ever happen, and continues to bide her time, waiting in the clock shop. But just what is she waiting for?
