I saw this film by chance, and I really didn't expect any type of theme or issue witch would be showned. I think it's the way to go, on this very particular film. You must experience it and not intellectualize it too much or you'll be completely lost. The catch here is that this film doesn't offer you a solution, it refers to several important question, both psychological and social, but doesn't teals you what you showed think about it, and that might be the reason that makes it so disturbing. One of the things that this film shows is that we end desiring that what it lacks in ourselves and what we can do with it when we find it. The film maker offers us an opportunity to think about important questions about one's identity, self realization, social awareness, but doesn't tells us what to do. All of this with good conversations between the actors, which are complex and unfinished. This film stimulates the mind and the search of the self. It's one of those films either you love it or you hate it, but it's a must see.
