Saving Neta; Or, Seeing If We Can All Come Together
29 April 2019 | by Elijah_TSee all my reviews

This was an interesting film. The way it transitions into different parts of the story was confusing at first, but in hindsight it was very straightforward.

There's a lot of sadness here. It's as if the director and writer wanted to portray a few everyday stories that just so happen to be unknowingly linked. Everyday stories that take place in the privacy of our lives, the parts we don't often share. Now that I think about it, this is quite the slice of life. None of that happy-go-lucky nonsense.

The segment that hit me the most is the darkest part of the plot. This becomes clear in a particular scene where one of the characters lets out her frustration very realistically. Though the method chosen was unkind to say the least, I found it very understandable. That scene along with the one in which she opens up about her past removes all doubt about where exactly the segment is headed. And even still, I can painfully understand. The dark segment deserves quite the discussion on its own.

Now, a certain someone did something emotionally dirty that I'm still not forgiving her for. Maybe she had a good reason. Maybe she just needed to test things out. Regardless, it was so wrong to me. And if you think it wasn't that bad, think about what it led to.

Other things that I enjoyed:

1) The banter between the children during one of the segments.

2) The animals.

3) The relationship between the sisters... in a slightly depressing and mostly self-tormenting way.

4) The performance at the end.

5) The revelation at the end being a closure inducing surprise.

6) The touching presence during the end scene.
