They cried, I didn't
I would have loved to give this film more, but it is really at almost every level poor. First the script, I love meandering films about people who try to live their life and cope with it. But this is so utterly uninteresting: it never relates to anything deeply human, it is so very shallow. They talked a lot in the film, but I did not hear one interesting line: no good for a film about human emotions and interactions and no action movie. You did instead hear a lot of: "What do you mean?" or "What's the matter?" or "I love you", "Me too". Poor writing. Then the actors themselves. Quite bad casting or not knowing what to cast (I think the latter). And did the director tell the girl just one thing? To be stupid, naive and giggle all the time? Small part but also bad: her mother. So cliché, more cliché's by the way, for instance the opera with Maria Callas as an illustration for their mood (and not being from the street, the maker wants to tell us obviously). The German guy was OK, you saw him trying to make the best of it, but with such poor material he had no chance. The worst was the Dutch guy. He had to play someone who is gradually really understanding what was happening, to himself and the others, at least that's what I could make up from it, but failed heavily in the scenes he was supposed to act that out. The worst was their lack of chemistry. Not only among themselves they hadn't, but also I had not one moment of love or emotion for the characters, how hard the director tried, letting them cry on screen. They cried, I didn't.
