Long Day's Journey Into Night

Bi Gan / CN, FR, 2018 / 140 min.

This neo-noir brimming with virtuoso visual feats is split into two: the first part is a detective story full of hidden longings and insoluble intrigues, the second part a mind-boggling, trance-like journey through the city of Kaili in 3D. Long Day's Journey Into Night world premiered at Cannes in 2018, where it was screened in the Un Certain Regard section. The film was also screened at the International Film Festival Rotterdam earlier this year.
