More than a decade after narrowly escaping death in his provincial hometown, Luo Hong-wu returns to search for a former lover whom he cannot forget. As he wanders the town’s ruins, he tries to reconstruct a hazy past enmeshed with dreams and fantasies – while being haunted by his long-murdered childhood sidekick Wildcat and the ghost of a woman that may or may not be his lost love.
This labyrinth of a film, a densely layered cinematic feat, marks the return of a precocious filmmaker that stunned the festival circuit with the daring film language of his debut feature, Kaili Blues. LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT is one of the most exquisite and beguiling films of the year, with a final sequence that will be spoken of for decades to come.
