Mrs. Fang (2017)
Critic Reviews for Mrs. Fang
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.
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.
