A very low-keyed film, with doses of comedy, about a young man Alex, who returns to Montreal after a five year absence. The film follows his relationship with Alya, the girlfriend of his best friend Arto, as well as with his neighbour Anne and her two children. Written by
A thoughtful movie well worth the time spent on watching it.
This movie has the feel of a continental movie about it. It is infinitely memorable, i loved the space the director gave the movie for the characters to grow and for things to happen. It is a quirky movie as other reviewers have written, and the humour is dry (though slapstick in places, which is really funny); but i liked the randomness of a lot of things in the movie because life is really like that. I was impressed by the scenery of Montreal. There are some very clever shots
for example one shot of the ceiling, to represent the hopelessness
that a couple feel whilst lying in bed discussing the state of their relationship. I liked the character of Alex, who is somebody that life sort of happens to, and who finds himself resisting the urge to run when he starts being responsible for what happens around him.
I think you have to either be in the mood for this sort of movie, or be appreciative of the measured pace. A thoughtful movie well worth the time spent on watching it.
