Matthew Frederickson’s review published on Letterboxd:
there's so much i love about this movie.
i love how the first police officer calls every girl he knows in horny desperation.
i love how he calls his ex's mom just to chat and then asks, one-by-one, to speak to every member of her family.
i love the idea that the conclusions you jump to about a stranger are often wildly off base. i love the intersection of a relatively pure person and a dangerous one. i love the idea of them falling in love.
i love the romantic ideal of sharing space with someone. not in a sexual way, but in an unspoken supportive way.
i love the setting of a shitty kebab shop and the notion that romance can blossom there.
i love the way grief is explored and the implication that, although love can have an expiration date, so can grief.
i love getting to experience hyper-specific parts of a city that is completely foreign to me.
but most of all, i love the way the movie explores the space between two strangers.
a million stars.
