ENGRAM OF RETURNING is a mighty explosion of a movie… Saïto, in essence, conjures new trace memories for his audience by offering hazy glimpses of landscapes that are never fully graspable, like halfremembered dreams. (An engram is a nice analogy for all of cinema, I think!) The visceral thrill of ENGRAM OF RETURNING owes much to Jason Sharp’s circular- breathed saxophone score, which is ruthless and mesmerising. (Darren Hughes)
