My favourite film of the year. My favourite film of many years.
Completely original, constantly surprising, endlessly inventive with a massive heart. It’s so rare these days to see a film that has no antecedents, but this one manages to be cut free from past film reality. The writer and director have produced an instant classic.
I’m not saying anything about the plot – the less you know, the better it is. But every time you think you’ve got a handle on it, you really haven’t.
Michelle Yeoh is fantastic, so is Stephanie Hsu.
A film that is embedded in culture yet is also universal.
