Watch Journey to the West (2014) online for free full movie and streaming film in English with HD quality. An alcoholic and his two small children are just getting by in Taipei. The encounter with a lonely employee of a grocery store could sustainably change her life for the better. The face of an exhausted man. Deep breaths, agitated look. Near the sea. And a Buddhist monk who moves with bare feet in extreme deceleration through Marseille – so slowly that his progress is barely perceptible and he becomes a dormant pole in the city bustle. Lee Kang-sheng, the star of all films by Tsai Ming-liang, embodies the monk with impressive energy. The uniform slow-motion pace of his footsteps and the consistently attentive body posture become an exciting acting tour de force. Unerringly, he seeks his way from the coast to the market district of Noailles and looks in his red glowing robe like an illusion. With Journey to the West, the director continues a short film series Lee Kang-sheng’s 30-minute slow-walking performance at the Chinese National Theater in Taipei has been further developed into a “slow-walking expedition”. Unusual, masterfully chosen camera perspectives collage the various districts of Marseille into a mesmerizing space in which the meditative migration becomes a surprising journey of discovery.
