Best Film in 2015
15 October 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the best independent Chinese feature film I have ever watched. The director is very talented and humble. The movie is about experiencing visions through time and space. A fusion of time and space. There is an exploration through the traces left by the passage of time.It has obvious difference with fiction and painting. The long sequence shot that lasts 40 minutes. So many audiences are curious how did he plan to shoot the sequence shot? He had conceived this long shot at least three years.

Congratulations to Bi Gan. His first film won many awards. The Chinese Oscar - The 52nd Taipei Golden Horse Award announced this year's nomination and BI GAN is one of the five nominees for Best New Directors.
