I feel a little bit impatient during the not-so-long 95 minutes of this film, exactly speaking, it could be a 15-minute short film which would be much better in my opinion.
I have no intention to be a spoiler, but I’m rather thinking it scorn for the film to tantalize its audiences with all these lengthening fixed-long takes, which appears intermittently and defy audience’s tolerance (surely the director Marco Berger is not Bela Tarr, yet, but one thing is assuring, long-takes is a double-edged sword, unless you’re a renowned auteur, be careful when you wield it.)
Luckily, the film still owns it unique charm, the two leads’ natural performance deserves a thumb-up, their emotional trajectories are touching and the chemistry does arouse the pathos inside even if I feel it pretentious occasionally.
It puzzles me whether or not I should recommend this film to my friends, it shall work for gay demography and girls who love BL cultures, maybe someone who has yet been interested in the vagueness of a story love beyond sex orientation. As for me, I must admit I have just passed that periad.
