Trivia

The marketing of the film was met with major controversy after its opening. The marketing of this art film was targeted massively towards the general public, instead of art film lovers. The film opened on December 31, 2018 since it was the last day of the year and it was intended to be "a good event to celebrate the new year". It was estimated that a lot of people went to see the film without knowing that this is an art house film. This resulted in major backlash as netizens complained against the film, as well as calling the ones who appreciated it "jia wenyi (phony-artistic)". The film earned 38 million USD on the first day of opening, yet the box office of the second day was decreased by 96%. See more »

User Reviews

 
A dream creator
12 June 2019 | by user-100-129118See all my reviews

The plot of the movie is less important. It's about the inner growth and reconciliation with one's past. However, the ambience created by the 1-hour-long single shot (unlike the Birdman, which was edited in the middle in one of the transitional scene) was really a dream for the audience. Can't appreciate the acting and directing more.
