Long Day's Journey Into Night (Di qiu zui hou de ye wan)

The hypnotic romanticizing neonoir of the most talented contemporary Chinese filmmaker Gan Biho is a magical space and time meditation, as well as an enigmatic poem about loss and pain, a dream woven from unreliable memory, a melancholy blurred presence and a past that may not even be. The film, which takes us to the fantastic ruins of the provincial town of Kaili in the southeast of China, culminates in a 50-minute shot-revelation in a single cut in 3D.
