It's a simple, cumulatively shattering record of life as we rarely see it captured in narrative or documentary cinema.
Especially because we know so little about the woman herself, she is practically all of us, as death will come knocking on all our doors sooner or later.
The film was never the story of a life, and by its close, it's not even the story of a death but Death itself: painful, pitiless and unbearably banal.
Unflinchingly eyes death and allows the awkward family dynamics that play out in anticipation of its arrival to cascade in flowering long takes ... a slog to endure, but puts forth worthy questions to mull for months to come.
A flood of tedium... [Full review in Spanish]
Mrs. Fang is as sober a depiction of the variously moving and bizarre rituals of observance and comment that spring up around the death of a person as Frederick Wiseman's epic Near Death.
Through his flat, non-intrusive style, [Director Wang Bing] contrasts the tragic smallness of the dying person's world and the familiarity in the motions loved ones go through in the final days.
As always in Wang's work, Mrs. Fang evinces an unobtrusive structuralism and ability to distill insight from seemingly innocuous occurrences.
The agonising last days of a woman in the final stages of Alzheimer's are captured in a stark, unflinching manner by Wang Bing's gruelling documentary.
