I just saw this remarkable, quirky little film on the IFC.
I can understand how many gave it only one star. some people need lots of crude humor, or car crashes and buildings blowing up. What can you do?
This film is VERY understated. However, it's not boring. None of that Merchant Ivory, "molasses in winter" kind of pacing. If you give it a chance, it sucks you in and takes you on a wonderful little ride inside the protagonist's head.
Most indie film make me run for cover, but this is an exception, and an exceptional film, IMO.
I can't recommend it highly enough.
