Cannes 2013: 'Bends' Review

I feel guilty for not liking Bends more than I do. A quiet two-hander from Hong Kong, it's all delicate beauty and subtle nuance. A rich housewife and her young driver share the same orbit, but they know nothing about the struggles in each other's world. This is the sort of film I eat up, but Bends didn't quite work for me. I explain why over at Screen International.
