Withered Blossoms

14m Drama 2024

Direct from Cannes, this gentle, tender work chronicles the relationship between a twentysomething and her ageing grandmother.

Using the hallmarks of slow cinema – still frames, no score, a reverence for tiny moments, emotions gradually accruing – to capture its central study, the passage of time, Lionel Seah’s beautifully observed, Sydney-set two-hander tells a Chinese-Australian story at once specific and universal.
