If you'd ask me to tell you, why you should watch this movie, I honestly couldn't really tell you. The naturalistic feel of it? The fact, that it follows 2 boys on their voyage, which seem to have no direction or higher goal, that they are trying to reach/achieve? The very fine and subtle acting, that elevates the slow moving pace of the movie? The fact that the people in here act irrationally most of the time, although by what standards would that be (western civilization maybe)?
While it seems simple and easy to describe overall, there is more to it. The back-stories of the boys for example (it would have been nice to get more of a feeling for the main girl too, but there is only that much time to tell a story). I understand that quite a few people didn't get the vibe of the movie or just couldn't care less for it. One thing is for sure, if you are bored after 10 minutes, you won't be delighted at the end of this movie. So if you rent it, it should be pretty clear from the get go, if you like this or not
