A real stunner about growing while your friends appear to be standing still. This looks so effortless, but the skill behind is formidable. Elena Martin is fantastic as Agata, will be keeping an eye out for her. Really love that MUBI gave us these excellent movies from the LA OLA fest.
The best thing about this movie is that it is refreshingly real and honest. It does not feel like a movie, it feels like I am watching bits a real story, curated by the director(s), as it happens. This is complimented by great acting, superb lighting and dialogue interplay. My major complaint about the movie is that the framing is weird -most of the group shots feel too claustrophobic.
Liked this portrait of the tough changes that happen when one woman's life begins to take a different direction. Well-done story of the mental/ emotional exhaustion that comes with negotiating the collision of a new intellectual sphere with the interests of old friends. A bigger budget would have helped convey a feeling of spaciousness at appropriate moments. The tight shooting doesn't always work with the plot.
