An intelligent look at love life and relationships
It's not often that I'll I watch a film 3 or 4 times, but this is one of those occasions. It's got a slow laconic pace with an edge, beautiful to watch.
The story centers around two women, the first a very sensible Pre-School English teacher who is shocked to find that she's just been dumped from what was perceived as a secure loving relationship. The guy chooses to leave the stability of his life with his fiancé, for a fling with a complete ditz in bunny ears. The two contrasting female leads are thrust together in an awkward situation when they have to share an apartment.
But the ensuing friendship between the two woman becomes more important than the throw-away boyfriend.
