Bianca Tan on STILL WALKING
“The preparation of food and sharing dinner, which are elaborately shown especially in the first part of the film, is the perfect ‘glue’and ‘cover-up’, for the psychological impasses. A very recognizable aspect of family life. I was especially drawn to the setting of the film, which is mostly filmed inside of the house. It almost makes you feel part of the family.”
