Our take

In this wistful, intelligent drama, an invigorating dance scene is the surprising catalyst for a family crisis. Ruminating on both cross-cultural adoption experiences and the ethereal power of loved ones’ mementos, Kogonada’s film is a testament to sci-fi’s capacity for tender human insight.
