The story does reward the effort it takes to unkink it, turning into an ever-decreasing circle of broken connections...
Though it takes a little while for the film to find its footing, this is an ambitious and, finally, also touching new work from Pinoy Sunday director Ho Wi Ding.
This intriguing, atmospheric movie from Malaysian director Ho Wi Ding tells its twisting story in reverse chronological order featuring its embittered protagonist in pivotal moments at three stages of life.
The strong performances from Ho's uniformly fine actresses (Liu Juei-chi, Louise Grinberg, Shih Yin, Huang Lu, and Ding Ling) do much to help complicate and even transcend the generic limitations.
Ho's most ambitious effort to date.
Ho's film succeeds in using fractured time as way of puzzling together the essential drives that move a city and its inhabitants.
There's a primal scene, an Oedipal drama and abandonment issues playing out in a film that throws ideas, genres and gendered violence together, all in poor taste.
