3DCS12
Director:Gan Bi
Cast:Sylvia Chang, Yongzhong Chen, Jue Huang, Hong-Chi Lee
Premiere:3. October 2018
Length:110 minutes
Genre:Drama

Director: Gan Bi  •  Scenario: Gan Bi  •  Cast: Sylvia Chang, Yongzhong Chen, Jue Huang, Hong-Chi Lee, Wei Tang

The hypnotic romanticising neo noir creation of Gan Bi, the most gifted of the contemporary Chinese film-makers, is a magical meditation on space and time, an enigmatic cinematic poem about loss and suffering, a dream woven from unreliable memories, melancholically blurred by the present and the past, which might not even have been. The mesmerising rhythm and the doleful images of the film about a man seeking his long-lost love, evokes the more sombre and more abstract early movies of Wong Kar-Wai, as well as Andrey Tarkovsky’s mature pieces. Following the hero as he wanders the dreamlike ruins of the provincial town of Kaili in southwest China, the feature culminates in an almost hour-long uninterrupted revelatory take in 3D.
