Kaili Blues2016

  • 4.1
An audacious, richly imagined feature debut that has collected prizes around the world, KAILI BLUES heralds the arrival of a major new filmmaker. Chen, a preoccupied doctor working in a small clinic in the rain-drenched city of Kaili, decides to fulfill his late mother's wish and sets off on a journey to look for his brother's abandoned child. His partner in the clinic, a lonely old lady, asks him to also find her former lover, giving him a photograph, a shirt, and a music cassette. On the way, Chen passes through a mysterious town where distinctions between past, present, and future appear to slip away.

Very pretty poetry film "It's like being in a dream". 4++ stars


I honestly don't care where this film stands in terms of film theory but it's beautiful, touching, clever and a splendid portrait of a region of China I know nothing about.

Feels like these italian movies called neo-realism, liked it a lot.

Acting was very natural. Overall mood was depressing because of the setting. Family misunderstandings and conflicts leads to dysfunctional relationship between two brothers, a love lost.....

Magic. Tarkovsky homage everywhere.
