This was one of the best movies I have seen in years.
I have always loved this kind of film. "Slice of life" is pretty accurate. But from my experience most people don't "get" this kind of film.
For people who watch these kinds of films and who say in the end, "But nothing *happened*", might not like this movie. It's that kind of film. The story is so subtle that it seems like nothing much is happening.
For people who don't appreciate subtlety, this may not be a good film for them. But for those who do, the humor is so subtle that it had me laughing out loud. But I love subtle humor. Not everyone gets it.
Understatement is one of the most powerful literary devices if handled well. Unfortunately, understatement has grown out of favor in popular art. That's a pity.
This movie is a subtle masterpiece. But for people who don't understand or grasp subtlety, try it anyway. Maybe you'll "get" it this time. Then again, maybe not.
This is a great feel good movie, in my opinion, and what I would call an instant classic. I loved every minute of it. Just when I think good filmmaking is dead, a movie comes along and renews my hope. This was that kind of movie.
