First-time director Wang Xide, shooting in gorgeous black and white, gives us three generations of women coping with loss and trying to reconcile with themselves and each other. In doing so, Wang has fashioned the kind of slow cinema that really works: this a film where very little ostensibly goes on, but all of life is revealed. The confidence the director shows in building this world and allowing the editing rhythms to take control of the audience makes for an absolutely lovely work. To top it all off, the soundtrack is fantastic, and there are moments of slyly understated humour. A quiet gift, the film won the Best Film prize at the Chongqing Youth Film Festival.
