Film description

Oozing atmosphere with its noirish neon glow, Long Day's Journey into Night sees Luo Hongwu return to the hometown from which he fled many years before. Back for his father's funeral, Luo recalls the death of an old friend, Wildcat, and searches for lost love Wan Qiwen, who continues to haunt him.

Sculpting time and space through virtuosic technical feats, Bi Gan's film yields successive visual and aural delights. With talismanic cues and motifs of uncanny doubling, the film is bisected - its first half recast in the second through a vertiginous, trance-inducing, hour-long single take in 3D.

A hushed, hypnotic study of hazy memory, lost time, and flight — and featuring the formidable Sylvia Chang as Wildcat's mother - Long Day's Journey Into Night leads the viewer on a nocturnal, labyrinthine voyage, one that both reveals and conceals a world of passion and intrigue.
