Days

Days ★★★★½

A profound display of contemplative and intimate filmmaking, perfectly encapsulating the loneliness in everyday life. We see two men go about their daily routine, they meet and then they embrace, afterwards they part and their days go on as before. Tsai illustrates the melancholy of their situations with a meditative approach, flowing ever so slowly and tenderly. The shots are so vast and immersive, open for the viewer to absorb every second passing, leaving you with a sensual and evocative feeling. Not much happens in this and not much is said, but it is an intensely moving portrait of the little moments in life, slowly and quietly overwhelming you by the end.
