You can stream this movie on Netflix.  The director, Tran Anh Hung, pays special attention to touch and texture (which is unusual because movies are visual things) as well as the details of ordinary objects. It takes place in Vietnam with such a hot climate, so all the houses are open with lots of windows, and the camera uses the windows to frame shots or to follow a character between spaces.
