A must watch film!
25 January 2016 | by hankbashiSee all my reviews

A groundbreaking form of narration with the sparsest of dialogues, locating people in settings where their life experience is nevertheless communicated with sparkling clarity. Greater Things is a visual feast with perfectly framed shots and deft use of lighting focusing the viewers' attention on the action with intensity. The film thus feels like a long feature, while it is in fact dense and compact in the sense that good poetics consists of only expressing the essential while omitting everything else. Renowned Japanese actress Kaori Momoi puts in another superb performance, Toshinori Kondo displays a commanding presence and extraordinary skill on the trumpet, while Marius Zaromskis dominates the screen with his energy and Nezam Ardalan pitches his lost character with great subtlety. If you want to challenge and expand your observation of the human condition or simply enjoy a thrilling aesthetic journey, this is a must watch film!
