thoughts on love and film

For me, this film is a brilliant little discourse on love and film. It shows the small, but important issues of daily life - as falling in love, looking, wandering the city. As such, it takes you on a philosophical journey, through which the director makes you wonder about the different ways in which we are looking at others (your lover, your family, a stranger) and at film. The director reflects on the film medium itself and on how film represents reality and affects us doing so. A film that also installs a strange, distorted sense of time. The photography and the editing are very well done, but the acting could have been a little more vivid, I think.
