Dimitris's rating of the film China Not China

A classic day-to-night city symphony, but multiplied to infinity. The repeating, overlapping layers give a dreamy, melancholic and uncertain vision of a transitory China. The final result is affective, but after a century of experimental filmmaking and exploring the materiality and sensorial aspects of the celluloid, I think that Tuohy's and Barrie's "experiment" doesn't have anything new to offer.
