I cried before I even watched the movie
5 April 2020 | by corneliamathisSee all my reviews

By reading the plot summary only, I was moved deeply already. Most of us have been there many times or at least once: we end a loving relationship because of some nerve wracking external circumstances or because the lovers can't find a way out of a mix of hurt feelings, unmet expectations and/or not being brave enough to stand tall for what's right for themselves - and therefore we sometimes chose the obvious: we let love go. I was expecting a conscious uncoupling experiment - and it went beyond. After every ending there is a new beginning. I like the camera work, the stills and the superb cast. Eventhough the viewers never really got to see the couple when they still were a couple, or only a glimpse in the interviews - it feels like they were never truly authentic through all this years. Each of them tried to be someone they never were, as if they lived only on the surface. Trying to be cool and brave and artsy to be recognized by the vis-a-vis. In my understanding, they deeply reveal who they really were - the raw selves - in the very last moment of the movie. And that was poignant.
