Movie Review: Murmur of the Hearts (NC16)
Making a directorial comeback after seven years, veteran Taiwanese actress Sylvia Chang's latest is one poignant film.
It depicts how the lives of an artist, her boxer boyfriend and her long-lost tour guide brother intertwine as the trio deal with struggles in adulthood while facing demons from the past.
Hong Kong actress Isabella Leong puts in an especially touching and impressive performance as Yu-Mei, who finds it hard to let go of her resentment towards her mother (Angelica Lee) while trying to look for answers to the many questions in her life.
Beautifully shot, Murmur explores interpersonal relationships in a dreamy fashion and gets you thinking long after it is over.
