naokoken's rating of the film Oxhide II

7 fixed camera angles and a continuous single take of a father, mother and daughter preparing dumplings for dinner. No soundtrack, just them talking. "How should I chop the chives? Each bit should be the same length as the width of the leaf. How you can you use chives as a reference for chopping chives? You've got a point." Very unassuming. Quietly beautiful.
