I enjoyed this movie
29 June 2014 | by faaus72See all my reviews

It may be because I'm reaching the age of the youngest character that I related to this look at "senior camaraderie", and enjoyed it so much.

While there are a few wistful streaks, they only made it more believable for me. As we reach the age of these three friends we do act and react differently then when we were middle-aged. I found this slice-of-life to be a charming homage to that difference.

The cinematography was skilled and carried the story perfectly.

Young and middle-agers may enjoy it as well, and even gain some insight.

If you are seeking action or depth, it may not satisfy your needs, but it worked perfectly for me.
