In Slovakia, the sixteen year-old Terezka is discharged from her school with a letter to her mother. Along her surrealistic journey to find her mother, Terezka entwines reality and fantasy and meets a man that is hired to burn clothes; a woman buried on the ground; a young bride that is marrying the forty and something year-old widow of his brother to support her family as a tradition in their village; her younger brother that is intern in a special school; a decadent TV comedian and his wife; a powerful mobster in the kitchen of a restaurant; one lover of her mother in her former address; and finally her promiscuous mother that advises her to travel through the world.

With no neutral narration to put onscreen happenings in perspective, many of the more mystical aspects of the search for a new reincarnation appear bizarre and difficult to appreciate. The search for the child drags on a bit in the beginning, but the Nepalese countryside is so incredible to look at, that the journey is worth going. When a child is finally found, the slow process of separating him from his parents is difficult to watch and by film's end, I was convinced the child was effectively kidnapped. Depending on how you come down on the belief in reincarnation, this movie will either present a fascinating look at the spirituality of the Tibetan people, or serve as an indictment of the belief in reincarnation.

Quirky comedy? Dude with Daddy issues? Throw it all in there and hope something sticks! Too bad none of it really does. Plus, we have the typical annoying kid whom doesn't act or talk like any kid I know. He was just a cypher for the plot, and nothing more. At least it was short.

Johan v (us) wrote: The best film about the ironic alienation and loneliness in mega-cities ever made. There is no comparison to Rebels of a Neon God. It is unlike anything you've ever seen or will ever see. Upon careful analysis, it is almost impossible to discern even the basic foundations of a three/five act structure, like the classic act 1, plot point1, act 2 pt1, mid-point, act 2 pt2, plot point 2, act 3... all nowhere to be found. Tsai Ming-Liang has created A NEW LANGUAGE of film making here.An essential study for anyone willing to explore a radically different approach to film making.Bravo!

You don't have to love dogs to enjoy it, you can watch it for the adventure and still find it rather enjoyable. For me it was when you started reading between the lines that this movie started getting better. It wasn't the dog-story that interested me, it was the other one. I quite easily managed to sit through it, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone else.
