I recorded this from the UP channel and though it wasn't in HD, I still found myself loving it and couldn't bring myself to delete it when done watching it as I usually do after watching something DVR-ed. I can't really figure out how to describe what I loved about it, but I think mostly it's the interesting culture clash and, as Niklas points out, the attraction between his left-brain temperament and her right-brain creativity. The dialog was so real, so honest, and I felt like a fly on the wall getting to watch a very real human connection develop over the few hours they had together - a connection that neither expected. They each learned a lot about themselves and each other because they were both very real and honest with each other more and more as the day went on. My primary criteria for liking a movie is whether I am given a reason to care about the characters, and this story did draw me in to caring for all the characters from the start.
