Good
26 August 2010 | by (Spain, Barcelona) – See all my reviews

I thought this film was actually quite interesting, tender and had some quite touching moments about two lonely, awkward people coming together in a sorta love, which they both desparetly want and need. It is a slow film, and not much actually happens, and some people may find the characters unbearably bland and boring (which I guess their kinda meant to be).

Also there is one confusing bit, the old lady boss with the birds, I had no idea what her backstory was meant to be and how she fitted in, (I missed small parts of the film due to outside circumstances), but overall I thought this was a good, enjoyable film (well shot too).

7 and a half out of 10.
