Maybe it didn't meet its ambitions but definitely a sober approach on the average life: not perfect, not a roller coaster but fast as hell, full of people that pass by and shaped by steps built by society lights years before you even consider to come around. A melancholic, gloomy and yet enjoyable result bringing into the formula witty symbolic elements representing the constant changing in life.
It's rare for me to drop a film in the first 30 minutes, but, Holy Shit, is the dialogue bad. The writing reaches Lost In Translation levels of irritating. It's so cliche, so pseudo-cute, so hipster, so liberal. I know kids can be annoying but that little girl is on a whole other level.
12 YEARS OF A LIFETIME. Neither a document, nor a series spread over 12 seasons, and much more than a technical feat. Just life, as it is. Lots of consistency, emotion, accuracy. Welcome to the history of cinema! = 12 ANS D'UNE VIE. Ni 1 docu, ni 1 série sur 12 saisons, et bien plus qu'une prouesse technique. Juste la vie, comme elle est. Bcp de cohérence, d'émotion, de justesse. Bienvenue dans l'histoire du cinéma !
