A crushing film that immediately grabs your attention and throws you to all corners of every universe. The film feels like a crazy variant on The Matrix with its combination of science fiction and martial arts with a religious sauce (the search for The One who has to save all the universes here) but with humor or as a parody of such films (including the Marvel superhero films), but gradually it becomes clear that this film certainly has a serious undertone: the game with all possible worlds naturally brings up topical themes such as the question of identity (who am I?) and truth (his there are endless alternative truths?). At the same time, the film can be interpreted as how a person can fragment mentally in a psychosis - the bursting of the pitcher of water or head if too much is jumped to alternative worlds - as a result of too much pressure from society, but in the end the film turns out to be to be about the struggle to let go of your child which struggle – unlike in the average science fiction movie – not through destruction but through love and acceptance of this world and your imperfection must be resolved (whereby you can learn from alternative worlds).

The film itself also has everything everywhere at once – it unfolds all possibilities in a cinematic explosion – and is probably one of the craziest films ever made, but the craziness has wit, intelligence and depth. This is top entertainment and does what movies are made for. An instant classic.

Good!

It always remains a bit of a wait with films that are praised to heaven, especially if they come from names like Kwan and Scheinert. Not that they make a film that cannot be trusted, but it should be clear that these two mainly look for weirdness and not so much a story that wants to communicate very directly.

That's why it probably takes quite some time to build it all up, but once the film is taken off the brake, it doesn't really let go. I saw a lot of praise online about Yeoh's acting, but as far as I'm concerned it is mainly Kwan and Scheinert who come out as absolute winners. Together they create a whole that perfectly knows how to alternate weird things with a deeper, important layer.

Still, I have to say that I had some trouble with the first half of the event. Especially because it is mainly a comedy here and I find it less effective. Visually decorated with nice ideas and bursting direction, but the whole never becomes compact. It's only when the true core is revealed that the film completely transcends its own level.

I have to say that sometimes I didn't know exactly what to do with all those strange images, but eventually the puzzle pieces fall into place. Whenever this happens, the film has gold on its hands, because that's what it really gets you with. Well acted, nicely decorated but especially very catchy once it gets sentimental. I have to say I almost shed a tear. Films like this are not often made with such dedication, which makes this film one of the nicer ones of its kind.
