'Long's day journey into night' is a mix of dream and reality, past and present, noir film and fiction. A mix that became this film in a almost experimental film. The plot is based on Luo Hogwu, who came back to Kaiki, his natal city, after the death of his father. There, he will try to find the woman he was so in love in when he was younger, and he will not be able to forget despite the pass of the time. The history is divided and narrated in two different parts: the first is a collage where there is no time, a similar technic to the way Wong Kar Wai narrated. The second is a nocturnal dream (the title has sense now), screened into a beautiful sequence-shot of 55 minutes and shot amazingly in 3D.
