A subtle gem
17 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I loved this film, it's intelligent and gently thought-provoking in an understated way. It's all about the characters and most people could find one to connect with, albeit in their youth.

One could say nothing much happens, yet it's never boring, full of genuinely interesting characters and the leisurely development of their friendships and lives.

The highly respected, professional film critic Mark Kermode has recently recommended "Life Just Is" as his DVD of the week on BBC 24. If it's good enough for him to enjoy, discuss and recommend, then I think it's definitely worth watching.

This is an independent UK film, yes it appears to have been made on a low budget but that takes nothing away from the general premise, as it tackles some of life's bigger issues, such as religion and philosophy. A film that you can relax into and simply enjoy for what life really just is, or contemplate the deeper aspects of our so called ordinary lives....it's up to you.
