A Simple Goodbye
Dir. by Degena Yun
2015. 97 min. DCP. Color.
In Mandarin and Mongolian, with English subtitles
An understated, semi-autobiographical story of a father and daughter, each equally adrift at opposite ends of their lives. Writer/director Degena Yun also stars in the movie, as a college dropout who withdraws from reality into virtual relationships, while her father—diagnosed with cancer and facing death—recedes into memories of his career as a leading Mongolian filmmaker. Their separate but parallel lives cross—and clash—in their last days together.
Reception to follow.
