Press

"It is a study on finitude that flirts with transcendence, in a serene poetic vein."
Rodrigo Fonesca

"This is an auspicious piece of slow cinema (incidentally, the Asian king of slow cinema and iconic LBGT+ filmmaker Tsai Ming-Liang also stems from Taiwan)."
- Victor Fraga, DMovies

"It is a heartbreaking family drama that takes you on an emotional roller coaster through the challenges of loving people for who they are and the pain of losing a loved one"
- Niikhiil Akhiil, High On Films
