There is something which irritates in the story, I think it is the wait of something to happen, though things are alway happening, just like in life, we wait for something to happen and we get irritated for some reason. We want to go but not to go. Stay but not to stay. And then the main character is not comfortable, which is also irritating in a way, still it is all in the head and the heart this film, not in the stomach. Girls in front of me where giggling once in awhile, after the lamb was dead I didn't hear from them again. But still with that mercy killing, an unbelievable scene, it is a sweet film. Small, simple and kind of cool, its one of the best slice of life movies I have ever seen.
