This is worth renting. Not a classic but a distinct original with many commendable performances by a large cast of recognizable talent.
Now, keep in mind that this is a rambling soap opera crammed into roughly two hours. In order to keep pace, you'll need the following plan. First, get a nice cappuccino. Get your bathroom breaks out of the way, and put your phone on silent ring and maybe discourage visitors because if you blink or walk away from this for even a moment, you will miss something and it will be tantamount to the story.
This is very original though not too stylish. I don't know if everyone comes from this feeling better about the human condition or having enjoyed their time spent watching it but you need to be aware that this is an exercise in listening and paying attention, which will challenge many. If you fall into the category of "many," maybe this isn't for you.
If you like entertainment that takes you away from the formulaic layout and typical dialogue that you can see coming, this will not disappoint.
Enjoy and may you all have happy endings of your own-whatever they may be.
