Two young women reawaken a dormant love for each other in Spider Lilies. Tattoo artist Takeko (the strikingly attractive Isabella Leong) keeps a framed design of the poisonous spider lily flower on the wall of her parlour, literally cut from the flesh of her father following his traumatic death in an earthquake. The image has not only become an important link between Takeko and her father, but also to Takeko's brother Ching, who, since the accident, is no longer able to recognise anyone - including his sister.
When Jade (Taiwanese pop icon Rainie Yang) a spunky webcam girl lustfully pirsuing her first love, visits Takeko's parlour, she becomes entranced by the tattoo of the framed spider lily (as well as the identical tattoo on sexy takeko herself). Taken with the quiet artist, Jade invites Takeko to visit her on her website, and recalls the crush she had on Takeko as a child. Meanwhile, an undercover agent is investigating Jade's webcam activity. From Taiwan's hottest femal director Zero Chou, this youthful melodrama is a cinematic exploration of love and memory, mixing innocence and sexuality with lush rural flashbacks complimenting the film's modern sensibilities, Spider Lilies is a beautifully well-rounded film not simply about the the two women's lesbian romance, but also about the grander and universal themes of family obligations, guilt and suppression.
