But it all depends on your mood, when/while you are watching this. Because while it is sort of a portrayal of society (a bleak look at parts of it), it is more at home in the comedy genre. But not the laugh out loud kind of comedy. The darker and subtler one, with weird characters and even weirder (and sometimes benign) plot developments.

Our two main characters are connected, but while they seem different, the only difference seems to be their social status. Not for very long though, as one of the brothers has to face something no one likes. Out of that situation and some very long shots, humor arises with the interactions you are watching. Not everyones tea and more likely to alienate people than please them. But there is joy in that too ...
