I have no idea what just happened. other than featuring a famous Chinese actress, that film had nothing to do with the description. and it was all disjointed and, well, that was a cultural experience. she spoke before the film, with a translator. I was completely at sea.

The Door (and short The Sea)

today's lesson: I am not Chinese

second Chinese film (and a short) that I didn't get. I liked this film but couldn't wrap my head around the protagonist's choices. he finds this door that allows him to step into a different version of his life. what choices got him where? which one should he keep? (also felt hamstrung by books, inscriptions in books, and documents that were clearly significant but only shown, never translated in the subs or discussed.)
