    I don't know, maybe losing your job might not be AS big of a hinderance if you didn't spend money on food about 5 different times in one weekend... Just a thought.

    If this movie were remade in English, I guarantee Warner Bros would feel the need to spell out that ending in the most obvious terms possible. But as it stands, that one facial expression we see tells us all we need to know.

    I really wanted to love this, but I started zoning out around the 4th time the camera hovered around a circular object before zooming into it to transition into the next location. And sadly, the 4th time wasn't anywhere near the last...

    There's a moment in this film that takes place in a night club that was so revelatory that it made me really hate the fact that so much of the bloated runtime here is spent dealing with the minutia of the daughter's profession instead of getting to the damn point! I get it, she's part of a consulting firm... Do we really need almost 3 hours to establish that?
