Emotions without Borders
11 June 2015 | by adrienna-677-737576See all my reviews

Art gives us the option to look at life through different eyes and with that, hopefully, a different perspective. This movie aims to explain that when it comes to our emotions, language and cultural differences have no borders, we are all the same.

To help support this theme the director has made this movie in three different languages, French, English and Chinese. Whilst the basics of this movie is about intersections, and how our life can change when we inevitably come to one, as in life the outcomes can be surprising.

Like most independent movies the viewer does need to work, but not in the storytelling, only in the context of the emotions and our expression of them. Does language really matter when one is angry? Or frustrated? Or in love? How we express ourselves emotionally does transcend borders, and when you add in a series of coincidences vis-a-vis these intersections, the endings are not always predicable.

Highly recommend a second viewing to catch all the nuances.
