Critics reviews

Watching the images of the encounter between Adachi and the child, we feel the sense of touch replacing that of sight, tactility predominating over the visual space. We experience the gaze as an extension of the body, our retinas reborn as fingertips.

A strangely moving work in the most mysterious of styles, Masao Adachi is something like the (fleeting) portrait of a thought (that thinks itself). In it, the simple, transparent images filmed by Philippe Grandrieux – accompanied by evocative, minimalist music composed by his son – act as a canvas, onto which are projected the words (delivered stream-of-consciousness style) of the Japanese director.
