Nice film, well directed with lots of beautiful shots.
The atmosphere of the movie is formed by long shots of certain slow paced situations which are often a bit strange or slightly absurdistic. These shots are often really beautiful images and are never a chore to watch. I especially like the shots of the street where the main character lives.
The style/atmosphere/humor of the movie reminds me also a bit of the director Alex van Warmerdam.
As far as the story goes, in order to figure out the meaning of it, it is needed to look at the characters as archetypes, rather than regular individuals. I personally want to watch the movie again in order to fully understand the meaning of it all.
This being my first Jos Stelling film, I can say I truly enjoyed it and I am curious to watch more of his work.
