Dry humor in authentic setting
5 January 2020 | by mn_aquaSee all my reviews

For me it was not about the main storyline, which is not interesting. It is the interaction between the characters that does it here. A careless handsome guy who makes a mess of his life, makes a video for an agency about his single mother only because he needs footage quickly. He does not tell her at first. After her anger she accepts the situation, and he ends up being her matchmaker. But things do not run smoothly, which creates funny situations. The dialogs and happenings are realistic. No hollywood make-up or fake-world-scenarios. Just authentic as we would experience in real life. I like this kind of movies because we can recognize ourselves in it. The acting is quite good and I had a good laugh. The last few minutes are weird and awkward however. As if the director did not know what to do with the ending.
