I typically hate these slice of life movies, but this is too dramatic and too violent in its conclusion to be one of those. I loved it. It respects its audience and demands them to pay attention. Every character feels important. It’s lengthy, but doesn’t waste your time. Even its warm colour palette is carefully considered. And it understands and names something about life that few films have ever been able to see. The final scene blew me away. Brilliant filmmaking that rivals the best of 70s Hollywood.
