A film that makes you sad
I’m not sure this will have a similar effect on a ‘normal’ person, but when I first finished watching this film, I felt very, very sad. Empty, even. Because I understand at least a fragment of what being a writer means, a fragment of what being in love is all about and a fragment of what it feels to have time swooshing past you – that, and how strangely these three interconnect. It’s a sad film, about people who can’t embrace both freedom and peace of mind, and who feel caged in worlds that outsiders would find perfect. And while it has its flaws, I thought it was a great film.
