I suspect this is a film we'll see again for those things we missed. The story is quirky, clever, funny, real and irreverent at times. It has the hallmarks of being a classic. The story of young love through the eyes of an introverted character (Oliver) as he journey's through his first relationships. There are some lines from this movie that will be quoted.
The story is set in the 80's. The shooting and look has a very older film feel to it. No clear HD modern look. I thought this was brilliantly done. Then there is a sequence that they managed to get looking like 8mm. Oliver's own film in a film. I was stunned to find in the credits they'd actually shot in 8mm. Wow! Sheer brilliance. And a great way to create an atmosphere.
We loved the film. It's well thought out and a great piece of work.
