Emotional roller-coaster
3 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

My first review ever. Just finished watching this gem of a movie, and I am blown away. There were so many emotions played out in this movie, it should be impossible not to relate to.

The topic is a coming-of-age story. Two young people in the big city, who want to experience everything. And it seems like everything is available today. And your smartphone just amplifies all the choices you have.

The tone of the movie is slow and somewhat grey all throughout. Camera action and music is slow and deliberate really supporting the heavy emotions. It is not sad though. Just really intense. The movie explores many emotions and experiences, and gives you plenty of time to feel them yourself. Don't want to spoil it, but they get to go through a lot.

The main casting was really good. Actors took their time to get into the roles. Some background stories were told but only when needed. Also plenty of good supporting roles.

It all makes for a very interesting story, and as a viewer you really relate to the characters and what they go through.

It is rare that a movie has the guts and takes the time to deal with so much, and do it so well.

The subjects are bound to cause reflection, so if you watch it with your significant other, be ready to take some time afterwards to reflect and discuss.

I was very impressed 10/10
