Love this film. Love how the main concept of this film feels plausible; a stranger than fiction type of story. Yes, I know that it's not the purpose but love thinking about which side of the coin I'll be. The actors are stellar; able to convey the ludicrous notion from the bereaved mother and its conclusion with subtlety and weight.
Fantastic movie. I came into this knowing nothing about the director or much about Chinese cinema in general. I came away overwhelmed by the emotional impact of the story and the artistry of the camerawork and editing. Xioashuai says more with closeups and silences than most directors say with dialogue.
