Murmur of the Hearts

Murmur of the Hearts ★★★★

it took a second viewing to reaffirm just how dense and strange this is on a level of execution - the visual motifs weave in and out of each other seemingly unmoored from the (already complicated) narrative; the expected scenes of melodrama go on for far longer than they should, only to taper off and resolve in impressionistic imagery or outright fantasy; images of physical pain, elemental landscape, and dream intrude into the plot and then slip away again.

and who would've thought that one of 2015's best films would reunite the female stars of tsui hark's the missing, and also feature strange sequences of underwater visions?
