Complexity theory finally finds a voice in the movie industry.
Each time I saw this movie, I discovered something new. Questions about time, space, synchronicity, and culinary innovations weave through stories held together by a group of existential gangsters.
The question of time: The movie is in black and white, setting a sense of timelessness. The story develops in a non-chronological fashion, but not through flash-backs. Cleverly done, the movie challenges the linearity of time.
The question of space: Like the writer, the movie's characters have moved through different countries: Brazil, Hong Kong, Germany. Somehow, they have always been connected - even if as simply as by a piece of German ham.
It is an intellectual and philosophical treat!
