Impressions on Film

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,
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.
