I don't know if this is a 3 or 4 for me, but here it goes. This movie needs recognition. The playful screenplay, how humane it is, how the lack of "action" made us get closer to the characters. The effort put in the little details. I have more than one favourite scene. The cinematography, the music, all of it. Beautiful work.
