Original Take
25 March 2019 | by ivans536See all my reviews

The movie certainly has an original concept, namely explaining human relationships through physics, and the way it's shot is different and fresh.

The story is also not bad. Although not very original, it shows us the beauty as a relatively sympathetic person, sorely misunderstood by our protagonist. This is a welcome departure from the standard of nerds being portrayed as the perpetual good guys, always misused by vapid beauties..

But what seems to be the movies strengths, are ultimately also the causes of it's problems Namely the big problem of pacing is partially owed to constructing the story in this extremely nonlinear mock documentary, which simply kills the tempo of the film. Secondly, with the pacing so uneven, the protagonist's neuroses become almost insufferable.

All in all a good fresh movie worth a watch, but unfortunately far from great.
