TASTE Vị

Bassley, a Nigerian footballer living in Vietnam, has been unable to make a living since he broke his leg. He and four middle-aged women he sometimes works for decide to escape the disappointment of their daily lives. They go to an old house where they create a special world for themselves, but this intimate utopia cannot last forever. Lê Bo’s debut feature brings us into a uniquely sensory dreamscape, evocative of the works of Apichatpong Weerasethakul. The grace and poeticism of his camera demand our patience, opening us to a shared moment of fragility with the characters on screen.
