    The style is documentary-like, in that it feels like life and that anything might happen. There is also a nice sense of being in the midst of the action and right there in the room with the characters. show more

    Long and sometimes grueling, other times confusing, this is a brilliantly acted, directed and written film. It evokes despair one moment and hilarity the next - sometimes both in the same moment. It is an emotional roller coaster, stripped of sentiment and formula. A great film.
