Under the pain of illness and treatment, Kang (Lee Kang-sheng) finds himself adrift. He meets Non (Anong Houngheuangsy) in a foreign land. They find consolation in each other before parting ways and carrying on with their days. The latest film from Tsai Ming-liang (Goodbye Dragon Inn, Stray Dogs, The Wayward Cloud), Days marks yet another masterwork in one of contemporary cinema’s most extraordinary careers.
“A quietly aching stunner from one of our great filmmakers. Gorgeously sensual. With Days, Tsai Ming-Liang has made something exquisite and rare: an elegiac, autumnal work that also feels like an artistic breakthrough.“ – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
“Four Stars! An extraordinary movie. Intoxicating.” – Simon Abrams, RogerEbert.com
“Slow cinema god Tsai Ming-Liang returns with one of the year’s most touching films. Grade: A-” – David Ehrlich, Indiewire
“An affair of pure rapture. A full body massage for the soul.” – Jonathan Romney, Film Comment
