France, Germany, Japan Also known as: In an old Parisian house there is a new tenant — a delightful young actress from Australia. Sarah voluntary habits irritate tenants: Only neighbor Sarah , a wise old Chinese Zhao knows that Sarah deeply unhappy , so that is going to commit suicide. Fascinated by despair and passion of his new friend , Monsieur Zao offers her unique cure for melancholy: Chinese magical treats and friendly attention. Sarah soon became his idol, a mysterious and dangerous … Review: Even here it no reviews.
Maybe it was his total invisibility , modesty, he is such a film stesnyashka. But really beautiful and unusual movie! With its distinctive Asian — European atmosphere. Sarah arrived from Australia , a failed actress with obvious depressive tendencies, with dysfunctional personal life and bad-tempered , settled in the neighborhood of elderly Chinese who keep the traditions of their ancestors and themselves in some ancestral altar.
This couple of weird takes no less strange relationship. Chinese Sarah becomes a mentor and guardian , and Sarah for him rather tempter and obsession.
Sarah is beautiful in design Leelee Sobieski , which I love , even though she plays forever in some dubious projects. She is unhappy and unlucky , despite its exceptional beauty. And an elderly Chinese man is calm and peaceful, despite the fact that he was an elderly Chinese.
Difficult to say what this film. Maybe about how difficult hysterical women comprehend the wisdom of Zen? This suggests to us a little neighbor girl , from an early age already rolls scene with or without. And guys who behave like hysterical women , too far gone.
A wise old Chinese man , not because probably wise that does not feel feelings. He feels them, and how. But they can not throw. And for a beautiful woman , far from the wisdom of Zen , feelings do not mind. Or maybe not so far , and it? And in the contemplation of its beautiful imperfection.
