Surprised me!
10 August 2018 | by gregportergoSee all my reviews

This film seems so unassuming but it really packs a punch. It did for me anyway. The characters felt like they really existed and I ended up getting really invested in their lives. It's small, for sure, but it's very lovely. One reason I think it works so well is because the actors have terrific chemistry. They play off each other well and the way they slowly confide in each other seems completely plausible. I just wanted to see what would happen the next day they met, and the next...

I also loved the animation - so colorful and fun. It added another dimension to the whole film. I wish there were more movies like this that told simple but engaging stories with characters I wanted to follow. It just made me feel good.

I hope more people will discover this movie.
