|A rather zany funky film, very funny,
yet providing intriguing insights into life and death.
Story-line: A nameless detective, still mourning the loss of his wife, investigates a mysterious death in a Zen temple. His logical left-brained crime-solving skills are useless in the intuitive, non-linear world of Zen. The detective’s mind is thwarted at every turn by his suspects, as in:
Detective: Where were you at the time of the murder?
Monk: What exactly do you mean by time?
Increasingly confused and unnerved, haunted by his wife’s ghost, and with the investigation going nowhere, the detective finds himself drawn into a deeper, more personal mystery. He must confront terrifying questions about love and loss, which lead to a startling realisation: the mystery he’s there to solve is the mystery of death itself.
