phương’s review published on Letterboxd:
growing up, i used to think that my mom was my favorite parent. my mom was supposedly my rock, my listener, and someone who was supposed to teach me the things i ended up teaching myself. i think as time passed by, that mentality changed and i wish i knew why. i wish i knew why she was distant and passive and why she never held me close and opened up to me. whatever the factors may be, i found this film to be so close to my heart. it showed me the beauty and anger in maternal love and how intricate love can be and how one can find love in different places. this film is ultimately a love letter to mothers and in it, i found a feeling of being loved that i really never felt in my life.
