Engaging performances, good flow of story line with time shifting back and forth. The very effort of such a slow paced close-up on a way too common depressive social and cultural phenomenon of divorce deserves applause.
It is not enough to just have an ending without resolution and without glimpse of happiness. It has to be compelling. Sure you’ve taken the risk of all escapist movie goers not liking it by being authentic to life itself and by showing through your cool and compassionate lenses – a good and brave effort. Also annoying is the long love making scene in the diner, a justified scene of the confused minds and hearts and desires by the two; but too drown out.
