What remains of our lives after we’re gone? That’s the question posed by this film, which explores the finiteness and frailty of human existence from a possible apocalyptic future.
The director of Over the Years (which was also part of the Berlinale’s Forum) succeeds in giving his observation documentaries a strange narrative that gets us hooked from the first minute of their projection. In this case, the prowess is greater because this film has no dialogue or human voices (not even silent ones). It’s a montage of shots of abandoned places, where nature starts regaining control on what men once dominated. Rundown factories, highways where weeds grow and theaters in ruins converse in a continuum without us hearing any sound other than that of silence. The result is as intriguing as it is overwhelming, an unlikely meeting between a location scouting for Tsai Ming-liang films and post-apocalyptic fiction. FEJL
