I watched this as part of the Internationl Film Festival in Berlin. With a running time just over an hour it was a good film to fill in between other slots/movies I wanted to watch. The film does concentrate on relationships and plays a bit like a documentary. It obviously isn't, though I did not research where the idea came from.
Life imitating art or is it the other way around? Whatever the case, the cast has fun playing the roles they are given and the dialog matches their enthusiasm. It never gets too deep into things, but I don't consider that a bad thing. Not a lot of people will watch this I reckon, but if you get a chance and like relationship dramas, give it a try
