A Film About Adults, From An Adult Perspective, How Very Rare and Cutting Edge
You'd have to be very unhappy and hopelessly jaded to not enjoy this film, or perhaps just too young to understand anything about it. I was intrigued from beginning to end and completely mesmerized by the stunning cinematography, the beautifully naturalistic scripting and acting, as well as the absolute beauty of all four characters and actors. This is an intense study on the fragility of the human spirit, the bargaining and compromising of co-existence, and the depth and complexity of the constant reckoning of our lives we face daily... by the hour.
There's a lot packed into this film and it gracefully dances on some vulnerabilities that most of us can't even admit to harboring. Very smart and concise without a grain of fluff. A good story is always about what isn't said. If you want to see a reflection of life that hammers out the truth and spoon-feeds you every bite, then watch an action film or Dirty Dancing. If you prefer films that allow you to explore what people are actually thinking, then let yourself go... and enjoy this. A nice, refreshing swim.
