This movie lacked a lot of elements, but above all it was unrealistic and shallow. I feel like I wasted the last 2 hours of my life, hoping there would be some climax or maybe just a linear plot. And don't try to tell me about symbolism... if this is how adult love really is, I have very dire expectations for the future of humanity.

And just so you know, Natalie Portman was the worst cast choice for this role. Not even the bare breasts could keep my husband awake.
