This movie is engaging. This has something to do with the acting, something to do with the direction and a lot to do with the handling of subject matter: A man who hasn't worked out what he wants to do with his life has suddenly been given a deadline. The performances are strong and its actually about something. Its a fantasy in a lot of ways, it plays out like the full spectrum of lifetime desires, misdemeanors and heartache. Through the sequence of this film, the lead character experiences both sides of betrayal, copious amounts of sex, wild spending, debauchery, a lot of pain and a lot of love. Its gorgeously shot too, across European winter and has a soundtrack to die for. This film seems to have polarized New Zealand audiences. In my world that means its a good film.
