An extraordinary peaceful film
3 May 2017 | by luqi33See all my reviews

I watched this film during a casual trip in Taipei. This four-chapter documentary movie placed a big pause to my normal routine. It brought deep thoughts on how we connect with the world and what values the most in our life. The cinematographic was so calm and sublime that I could almost breathe from the scene it created. It took me a long while to digest the many topics it raises and the phenomenon it holds.
