The plot is overloaded with all sorts of personal, psychological, familial malfunctions. It ends up tiring you rather than entertain or make one think.
The development of the characters is a bit predictable even though they have many different hardships to undergo.
The acting is excellent without an exception and the aesthetics of the film is brilliant.
I'd say it's like a crush test for yourself to see how you'll react and what you think intuitively about all that's going on.
