1st movie I watched at the 42nd São Paulo International Film Festival.
"Wobble Palace" is a great dramedy that uses millenial culture to talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly of modern relationships and how we deal with loneliness in the modern world.
The movie's couple is unsatisfied with the state of their relationship, so they are always trying to find refuge by going out or trying to connect with other people instead of just finishing their love ties. But they can't, because their fond memories hold them back and they don't know where to go next.
There is a line in the film that says that "Two betta fishes in the same bowl will start to fight each other, and one of them is going to die". This basically sums up most of the movie (even if in a much expository manner).
The realistic characters and dialogue ooze out of the screen, but the, sometimes, inconsistent style and the vaguely political message end up hurting the overall experience a little bit.
