Millennium Mambo

Directed by Hou Hsiao Hsien and starring Shu Qi are good enough reasons to just watch the movie. As expected, the Hou’s style that requires one to be patient for the flow of emotions, the characters to speak for themselves and the story to unfold in its own pace can be trying at times, yet mysteriously captivating at some point. I don’t particularly like his style, but the chemistry between his direction and Shu Qi’s performance will never fail to interest me. Take a look at the darker side of life and how for some or many more, life can be a Sisyphus’ punishment…but you have been warned–Be very patient.
