Here's a film that adds nothing to this world. Like many European films that try to give us a first hand account of reality "Parasol" goes nowhere. Some bits try to be comical at the expense of the characters and fail. Some others are just deliberately unpleasant and make these 85 minutes feel like days. Most of the film consists of pretentious overlong takes. They're not meaningful, artistic or enjoyable, it's just garbage.
There's a hint of hubris in the concept of the film too. Does the author believe he understands every aspect of common people's lives? Does he consider himself above these ordinary people?
