Lu Chunsheng’s highly distinctive feature length film “History of Chemistry II” is staged in vacant spaces where the protagonists seem lost or detached from reality, wandering around like somnambulant sleep-walkers. Correspondingly, the most significant aspect of the film is its absence of any clear narrative, instead the film is structured around repetition: In Beckett-like absurd scenes we witness the characters repeating actions that make no obvious sense. The performances are perfectly synchronized to the sound score composed by B6. The film’s odd charisma clearly plays homage to the surrealist works of Fellini and Bunuel.
