Kind of like this. Felt a little healed after watching this. This movie is very light and smooth. Staking with many tiny little things in their lives to build the whole picture. And then you just finished watching this. The father is, like his friend said on the funeral, a stupid person. The father loves his family in his own way, but couldn't give them what they need as a father. He did many small things which his family could never understand, but those things do mean something to some people. Well, then maybe I am not such a loser.
