I have no hesitation in saying that this film was one of the best I have ever seen. I sometimes wonder whether art still has the capacity to bring me to my knees emotionally. This work answered that question for me. Devastating.
nice comment on the cul-de-sac in the relationship, in which conformity and shame for your partner destroy all the leftovers of the couple parfait, but i also can't shake the feeling that something was missing, i totally adore birgit's pink shorts though
A subtle and seamless chamber piece with stellar performances and some extremely precise observations ranging from funny and awkward to painful and puzzling. It builds slowly and carries a fair load of dead weight, but in its best moments - some are downright brilliant - it illuminates modern relationships in our part of the world with great honesty.
The movie is maybe a bit too simple but the lead actress is really impressive. There is something deeply touching in the way she sees this man, loves him so much and jumps out of an open window. Actually she might be acting too well for the sake of the movie because Everyone Else becomes All but Gitti in my mind : that's how much she impressed me.
One of the greatest films about a modern relationship I know. The acting is pitch perfect, the premise, absolutely incontrovertibly realistic and relatable. Watch how quickly lives can unravel and then be stitched up. Bravo. One of my favorite films of the aughts.
