festival & awards:

This film is an outstanding political work. We can see the real weight of history and time on his face and his solemn countenance, even in a humorous mood, and it will make the audience feel indescribably sad. The fixed camera has an effect on stressing silence, and the bustling movements of the characters which make the film a sort of slapstick, but the story of the director’s life is too sincere and tragic to simply laugh at the scenes. This film consists not of a large scale struggle but of the trivial matters of life, which makes this work more poignant.
