The quest of one's own identity, and meaning of life.
17 August 2000 | by (HK) – See all my reviews

The Director blends philosophy into his own movie. The quest is that what if he is of another race. It is not as superficial as what if I am an American or a Japanese. The exploration here is that Henry has made it all, and he searches for the meaning of life, and he finally goes back to where he comes from, and he is happy with all that. Everything is symbolic in this film. It touches on themes like absurdity of life, the French existentialism, ends with the Oriental ideas, that Henry finally gets a chance to know himself, and what treasure in the materialistic life is greater than knowing thy oneself. If you are searching for something deeper, this will certainly help you to find out more about yourself.
