China, China (João Pedro Rodrigues e João Rui Guerra da Mata, 2007)

Trapped in a life she doesn't want, China finds her freedom in small moments of bliss she invents for herself, and in those moments, China, China comes alive like few other movies do.

This scene, a 3-second handrail slide that's made to last 10 seconds — because that's how long it takes to really appreciate it — is probably my favorite in all of João Pedro Rodrigues' work.
