Pete, Tom, Claire and Jay are university graduates having trouble making the move into adult life. Beneath the hanging out and the daily routines simmers Pete's desire to find a spiritual answer to life's meaning, Jay's desperate need not to get hurt again, and Tom and Claire's ever increasing mutual attraction.Written by
This was a delightful refreshing experience for me, an hour of peaceful contemplation for which I would not change anything! I happen to have just graduated just like the characters in the film and I feel like I have known them my whole life.
The film was an extremely brave approach for director Alex Barrett who was on such a tight budget for his first ever feature film! It was beautifully shot through the aesthetic of the 7D and the lighting brought extra glamour to the shots and characters. The absence of soundtrack makes it evermore intense and authentic, "Life Just Is" as the title so clearly states!
Very 'French New Wave' with a contemporary young, good-looking and fun cast, mixed with an emotional tone which brought tears (good and bad ones) to the audience.
