Sebastian is bored. He gets his kicks playing real life "games" with unsuspecting people; openly speculating on the lives of strangers in front of them, scheduling multiple chat dates a day. His life changes when he crosses paths with a quick-witted school teacher and a schizophrenic street poet.
The act of slumming, didn't seem to have much to do with the main character of Sebastian. He is just bored with his life and is searching for some meaning within it. Unfortunately, their is ZERO back story provided to explain why he feels/acts the way he does to total strangers or why he makes certain choices. Which left me feeling no connection to him during or after the film.
Good first act, good acting, and amazing locales help this film, everything else...?
