The Vertical Ray of the Sun (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on April 3, 2005

Breathtaking work of tranquility and harmony, even while the lives of the characters are thrown out of balance.  Tran seeks out beauty wherever he can find it — in faces, in food, in nature, in walls and ponds and rainstorms.  Beauty in mood and music and emotion, and in family.  Watching The Vertical Ray of the Sun is like taking a warm bath, or like… well, like being in a ray of sunlight.  Or like a peaceful moment At the Height of Summer (to use the title’s more literal translation).  It’s intoxicating and mellowing, and feeds the heart.  Rating: 10
