Sophie: As Paw Paw: In the moment before it happened, I kept thinking, "But I'm theirs. I belong to them. "And then it happened. I died. Really. But even dead, I stayed in my cage, because I just couldn't believe it. I wasn't done waiting for them. Just let me wait forever, knowing they will one day come.

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.
