You write an end to a story
I heard a good thing today which says when you write an end to a story, you do it after deciding when it's a happy end or something else. You just stop when you have nothing more or nothing better to say. That's what this film looks like. Not bad, has its own energy and works interestingly for some time (or, if you prefer, all the time), but at some point, it stops with all the funny things it does and then it goes as a normalcy of its own. The problem is: it just stops. And when it does, men can be men only if they're children or act as ones, women can be women only if they keep being unhappy and unsatisfied. If you ask me, nothing new there for a story that wanted to say something big. Still, it's worth of a recomendation ...
