COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Hanté par la mort tragique de son père, Juan Martín Hsu, jeune cinéaste argentin d’origine taïwanaise, revient à Taipei pour filmer les retrouvailles avec sa mère. Réalité et fiction se mêlent dans une quête personnelle où, du tableau d’une saga familiale marquée par le déracinement, se détache le portrait d’une Mère Courage. 

Haunted by the tragic death of his father, Juan Martín Hsu, a young Argentinian filmmaker of Taiwanese origin, returns to Taipei to film the reunion with his mother. Reality and fiction blend in a personal quest in which a portrait of a Mother Courage stands out from the picture of a family saga marked by uprooting. 
"Within 7 years, I travel twice from Argentina to Taiwan to meet my mother. I have questions about the murder of my father under circumstances that were never clarified. Over beers and cigarettes, she tells me the little information she has about him and his death. Without many answers, my second trip takes on a different meaning and I realize what I’m really looking for: to talk about the uprooting of my mother and portray a woman who is a fighter."
(Juan Martin Hsu)
