i love this film - it is unpretentious, disarming, and funny. the purposeful, constructed quality of the color palette, wardrobe, framing, sets and locations strangely produces a moving, natural and real result.
the film is funny and goofy and sweet, and i was so pleasantly surprised (and indeed shocked) by the end that it reminded me of what is possible in film (oh yeah, not everything has to be predictable and saccharine and completely driven by Hollywood's bizarre movie logic).
PARSLEY DAYS is extremely unusual - it is not a movie inspired by or about other movies - instead it's about some of the strange, incongruous, difficult and beautiful parts of life that are rarely seen in the cinema. wonderful.
i am excited to see the director's next film LOVE THAT BOY.
