Movie Info

After eight years toiling in bit-parts, aspiring actress Nina Wu finally gets her big break with a leading role in a spy thriller set in the 1960s. The part is challenging, not least because it calls for full nudity and explicit sex scenes, and the film's director is often hard on her. But both the industry and the press are confident that the results are sensationally good. On the brink of triumph, though, Nina's psychological resolve begins to crack. She rushes back to her family home to deal with two crises: her father's business has gone bankrupt and her mother has suffered a heart attack. She dreams of rekindling a close relationship with her childhood friend Kiki but is haunted by paranoid fantasies that a mysterious woman is stalking and attacking her. As Nina clings to memories of happier times, it seems that there is one crucial memory that she is repressing....

  • Z and Wu Kexi's bravery in refusing to neaten and de-clutter an impossibly untidy issue should not be underestimated.

  • You don't really want to be watching what's happening. Of course it's meant as an explicit exposé, but the borders between what's being shown and how it could be viewed by some people is disconcertingly blurry.

  • Small surface-level problems aside, this is a gripping tale, aided by a skillful filmmaker and an incredible performance.

    March 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It is a worthy effort and an oppressively ominous ride, best characterised by a blood-red dress that shows up again and again as the movie inches towards its climax and what is possibly, the secret behind Nina's mental breakdown.

    February 19, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Some faults in the narrative do exist and one could say that her preexisting condition somewhat tones down the accusations the film makes, but in the end, those are but details and the end result is impressive, both contextually and visually.

  • Midi Z does nothing else, but diligently copy tendencies rather than articulate ideas. [Full Review in Spanish]
