Quotes

Henry Welles: Sometimes I wonder how I got to be this person. It's like, you have a version in your head of who you think you are. And then one day you realize, maybe you aren't that. Even though you think you're really kind, and good a heart... Really you're just the sum total of a bunch of bad decisions and stupid behavior.
Nathalie: Henry, you are one of the kindest people I know, and no amount of stupidity could change that.

Underrated
2 September 2015 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure how this film snuck past me until now. It's an absolute masterpiece.

Isabelle Blais' performance is amazing. My heart was breaking watching her, she was so good. I really felt her pain. I really wanted to hate Braff's character, he's not necessarily the most stellar human being – but he's oddly likable.

I loved the quietness of the film. Its character driven, and reminded me of the Hal Hartley films I loved when I was younger.

I'll be looking out for Deborah Chow's next offering. This has gone into my favourite all-time films.
