A painting does not have a beginning, a middle and an end
That's what "Comet" is about and that's how it feels.
It's about man and a woman shown in different stages of their 6- year-long relationship. The director's got the remote and he's switching through the "channels" of their lives: the couple after 2 years, the day they met, the couple after 1 year and so on. You just need to be able to yield the steering wheel and enjoy the scenery. And wow! What a beautiful scenery it is! This movie is about romantic mood, conversation and connecting. It's neither about events, nor chronological order. It's not about a traditional story or deep meaning, but rather about how it makes you connect the characters to your own love experiences and the fuzzy feelings you get.
As Justin Long's character says at one point: "you should see our relationship as a painting; it doesn't have a beginning, a middle and an end."
Time is not a character allowed to crash their lives'party.
