Joseph falls into despair when his nine-year-old son leaves for Australia with his ex. Sufffering the hangover from hell, he walks away from his present life and boards a boat bound for Ireland to confront memories from his childhood.
There is no REAL Chinese in this film because this kind of political issue is prohibited by the Chinese government in the first place. There is no discussion nor critique because this film is completely shut down from the search engine in China, and there is no fansub group in China dare translate or make the subtitle in Chinese, period.
Overall, it's an OK-ish film in terms of the intensity of the plot. However, I think this film meta-critically makes a bold statement by juxtaposing a certain political-historical milieu of China and the current President of the United States, which is very intriguing to ponder over. I give this film an 8 for its boldness (probably a 7 for its plot), and I expect more to come for the upcoming episodes.
By the way, this film reminds me of (allegedly) Leica's "The Hunt."
