A new era is coming, and Warsaw stands uncomfortably at its edge. Art school classmates Christopher and Michal, on the precipice of their own coming of age, restlessly roam their city's streets in search of living forever inside the beautiful moment. Never content with answers, they push each experience to its breaking point, testing what it might mean to be truly awake in a world that seems satisfied to be asleep.
It may be gorgeous, but it's superficial, repetitive and totally incohesive. Some say it's a hybrid of fiction and documentary, but nothing seemed real to me, it was more like a mix of two overrated directors, Gaspar Noé and Terrence Malick with pulsating music. I think the attention turns to the fact that it's a documentary, but that's not important, I don't think anyone would care about the real-life protagonist or a fictional version of him, no one would repeatedly watch him (totally sober) drinking, dancing, doing drugs and talking random things with friends (that is, literally, what happens 90% of the movie).
