      Three deep stories are told, but each one feels like a shallow taste. The first story is about the reflection on the art of "photography" caused by the girl regaining her eyesight; the second story is about the product of "immortality" created by monks insisting on being "harmless", and the resulting spiritual crisis and Reflection; the third story, the test of "man" in the face of an extreme situation. Together, they constitute the metaphor of "Ship of Theseus", but it seems to be just...

      Dialogue between form and reality

      It's an excellent film, and it's strange how little people know about it. So there was a faint feeling of discovering an unknown beauty in my heart.

      Going back to the movie, as mentioned in the title, this is about partial changes, whether the body and the new individual still belong to the same thing. This height is completely raised to the height of philosophical discussion, so the film is presented in a simple way --

      the universe inside us

        This Indian film is very unusual, and I am amazed at this level as a directorial debut. The most prominent part is that the film is also two or three hours long, but there are no singing and dancing parts of the usual Indian films. The whole film is very calm, like a serious documentary, with an ice blade straight into the heart.
        The title of the film reveals everything, and the whole film is divided into three parts:
        the first story tells about a blind photographer. After...

      Seems to be open, but the answer is there

            I read a comment saying that the ship of Theseus was destined to be thrown into the sky for dozens of streets, so I deliberately watched it first and then watched the ship of Theseus. Intuit's high-mindedness and far-reaching ideological realm are of course stronger than that of the so-and-so society that seems to satirize the gods and amuse the ugly, but in fact set up agencies everywhere to prepare to break through the censorship and earn box office. It is destined to talk more about...

      In fact, it is not uncommon for a religious country to produce something with depth, but a good movie must have a story in addition to an idea. It should not be preachy to state your views to the audience. The plot should be compact and dramatic but leave room for imagination. The Ship of Theseus did it. Three relatively independent but interconnected stories discuss the same kind of philosophical issues: whole and part, individuality and commonality, relative and absolute. Script 99, Camera...

    Movie plot

    The Ship of Theseus consists of three seemingly unrelated separate stories.
    The first paragraph, a blind girl photographer, famous for successfully holding a solo photo exhibition when she was blind, but couldn't find the inspiration for photography after corneal transplantation to restore her vision.
    In the second paragraph, the monk who resisted animal experiments faced the choice of liver transplantation or death because of cirrhosis...

    Movie quotes

    • Mr Gupta: Look into your own religion. There's constant reference to relativity. Your ancients, they were masters of understanding that there is no one ultimate rule book for all situations. The woman churning curd into butter, she has to pull one end of the rope, and let the other end go otherwise the rope will break. Contradictions and polarities are two ends of the same rope. You can pull one end and let the other end go.

    • Charwaka: Monks are supposed to be celibate, then why this much intellectual masturbation in first place?

    • Charwaka: It gives me some kicks though, to know that, a part of me was a part of an animal once, a flame, a star. A part will become mineral, flow in a plant, sprout in a fruit, get pecked by a bird. Every atom of my body will be recycled by the universe. You think you are a person but you are a colony. A microcosm which has ten times more bacteria in its body... than it has human cells.
