People in the future will look back on films like this that rate so well and think, "what the hell did people like about that?". It is mediocre, trivial, slight and these days almost a self-parody of the artsy type of movie with the plinky-plonky music and the scenes where everything is so subtle it forgets to actually happen.
I like interesting stories. This is just a story. And I mean "just".
The characters aren't all that interesting and what they are doing and feeling is not all that interesting either. This kind of cinema seems to want to tap into what it's like to be a human and to have complicated feelings and mixed up memories and it's just not very profound or special or enlightening and it definitely isn't very entertaining.
Perhaps to like this kind of film depends on where you are with your own perceptions of the world or perhaps you just like having what you yourself feel, affirmed on screen and you see that as something that makes a film great, but I personally don't. I want some excitement, some interest, something I wasn't expecting, something to make me think or really feel, something profound or even something alien and unusual or eccentric, bombastic or beautiful. But this? This is pedestrian, lethargic, sometimes painful and ultimately just dull. Dull, normal, people with nothing really going on, just like nearly everyone you know. I don't want to go to the cinema to see or feel this. This is just life. I get it. I know it already. Give me some escapism please or at least some characters or a story better than this.
