A nice film about young adults
2 August 2013 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

This is a nice film to watch, if you are prepared to do some thinking about it and use your imagination to fill the empty spaces the film does not fill itself.

First, characterization. There's not much of it, so it is hard to understand the characters and their actions, there seems to be no real, believable motivation behind their actions. But that's not such a problem, since we can imagine this for ourselves. It's really open to any kind of interpretation. Nevertheless, I still think the characters should be at least a bit more developed. It was like watching an episode from the second season of a series that I've never watched before.

Another flaw for me were some visual metaphors trying to correlate two scenes that just didn't really have any kind of connection. For example the one when Kurt was being examined and everyone else was partying. I also didn't like the slow motion scenes that in my opinion turned out amateurish.

Otherwise I liked the film. I think it shows nicely how we change as we mature and how we lose a bit of our freedom along the way. We look back upon our crazy irresponsible teenage years with nostalgia and wonder where did this person go. And sometimes when we ponder over our adult life we just wish we could become that person again, just for a day.
