“Only the River Flows”, thriller or pig – Liberation

The Chinese Wei Shunjun delivers a choppy and not very effective ersatz of Bong Joon-ho’s “Memories of Murder”.

The descendants of Memories of Murder by Bong Joon-ho, whose international progeny we should be able to count one day or another, is expanding with the Chinese film Only the River Flows of an additional element. Cop obsessed with murders whose author eludes him for a long time, sticky investigation against a backdrop of incessant rainy cataracts, grotesque characters and vinegary considerations on existence, all the ingredients are gathered for a relatively inefficient and completely choppy thriller, which has treated his decorum to the point of imagining that the police station is relocating to a deserted movie theatre. Where is reality, where is fiction? You get the picture.

In some perspective. Only the River Flows de Wei Shunjun, avec Yilong Zhu, Zeng Meihuizi… 1h42.
