Do you know what true love of film is? In relation to the ‘Double Casting’ trilogy, it manifested itself in this way. I had to watch the film in parts in the morning, and all day long I wondered what would happen next. Perhaps the presence of such a strong interest in my case can already be considered a true love. But each viewer has his own, quite unique love stories, which you have yet to read in other reviews, but for now we’ll talk about the film.
It’s simply impossible not to fall in love with ‘Double Casting. This is the kind of film that not only grabs and holds your attention, but also delights you with its depth and quality, subtlety and heaviness at the same time.
Here is a chess game played out for the third time as ingeniously as it has twice before. Only in the third installment is Andy Lau’s full-time soloist. Despite a certain number of characters, it’s practically one-actor theater. It is simply brilliant (a tautology, but you can’t do without this word) to show us how a man can fall into the abyss that he himself has been preparing for himself all his life.
His past is hell, his future is also hell. And there’s no escape, no hiding. And there is no way out. That is how simple, but symbolic punishment for sins is played out before us.
Mikhail Svetlov once wrote that “if I ever have to grieve someone with my death, then make sure the curtain closes at that moment. I can relate the same phrase to the third part of ‘Castling’. Only there, the curtain, which closes just before the shot is fired, then opens again, as if to say to the audience ‘this isn’t the end yet’, while squinting at it in a sly, Chinese way.
The game is over. Or maybe only the third game is over?
