Altough sometimes it is quite slow, the script is very good, melancholic and above all, real. The main confflict shows us kind of a love triangle that we have never seen before; a situation that is so strong that when you start thinking about it during the end credits of the movie, it's like "God, how the hell could this even happen at all?"
One of the things I liked the most about this film was the soundtrack. It is simple and beautiful and it always entered at the right time, giving it a more dramatic atmosphere during the scene. This, along with the excellent photography, made a great combination that makes you feel what the characters feel thanks to the very personal shots it has.
And obviously, the acting doesn't stay behind. The performances by the main protagonists were great and truly convincing; I liked a lot the job of the main protagonist, there was even a moment at the movie were I thought that his performance didn't look as a performance anymore. It looked as if he was living it rather than acting it. And that is something that every actor must do all the time.
Overall, it is totally worth to watch if you're someone that appreciates stories that make you think and engage with them from beggining to end.
Thanks for reading!
