Quotes

Sophie: As Paw Paw: How long was thirty days? It was turning out to be a little bit longer than say, for example, the day after tomorrow. Outside there was no time, no hours.

on crossing the shadow line
29 November 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

July's film depicts the quirkiness and clumsiness of those who are, as Conrad put it, about to cross the "twilight between youth and maturity", struggling with their call to adult life (in the form of parenthood, career, responsibility).

Although it speaks about a universal topic, there are many hints in the movie that point to our current generation. One for instance: accumulating whatever mundane knowledge on the internet, instead of sitting still and trying to think. So noughties.

I don't want to say more. If you are, let's say, in your mid 30s, urbanite, have studied liberal arts, and still struggle (or even better: wait) to define yourself, please watch this movie. You will find a part of yourself, and part of the answer to your questions.
