shimajdpour’s review published on Letterboxd:
I closed my blinds, turned on a small lamp, got into bed, poured myself some hot tea, and clicked play. And I wish I could relive those 2 hours again for the first time. One of my favourites of the year.
Prologue, 12 chapters, and an epilogue.
Each chapter better than the one before.
Chapter 11… the tears could not be held back.
Dialogue (wow), intricate characters, a multitude of complex themes, camera work (oof), lighting, performances (wow again), hints of surrealism, authentic romance, a dash of existentialism, a moment that makes your eyes pop and say WTF.
It delivers on all fronts.
Timely, complex, relatable, beautiful, VISCERAL.
