I was fond of the message of this movie: don't let go of the people you love. There is never any certainty of how relationships might work or not work out, but this movie shows that, no matter what, one should listen and follow one's heart at present times. The fear of being left alone make people not dare bet their feelings into relationships that faced a crucial moment at one point. Avoiding and running away is always safer. Mongoland shows that not being able to face yourself gets you in even darker corners of life and mind. Apart from the main message, the movie presents different human behaviors in personal and social contexts and it highlights them through image rather then dialogues.
