Alledaagse mensen die conversaties voeren over hun kleine levens en de verloren moed om daar iets aan te doen, maakt van Person To Person een nogal lege zeikerige film waar iedereen voornamelijk erg monotoon overkomt.

A quirky, retro New York comedy that follows a day in the life of several New Yorkers. It is not for everybody and the characters articulate their feelings and opinions in ways that are totally artificial, but that is one of the reasons why I found "Person to Person" absolutely amusing to watch. This is a well-written, well-acted observational comedy and once you accept its offbeat charm, you will have a kick out of it. Probably one of the most underrated films you'll see this year. I liked it a lot.

Person to Person

Premiering at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, it is just possible the film "Person to Person," written and directed by Dustin Guy Defa, will usher in a new wave of film making. It is one of the most unique, fully realized films I've ever seen. At each moment, "Person to Person" stays true to its characters' lives from beginning to end. It is a deeply felt, deeply feeling film, never shying away from delving deeper into each character's emotional life in a manner that is almost Shakespearean. In that way it constantly surprises. Every moment when you fear it's about to slide into something patent or untrue, it brings you deeper into the story and into its characters' lives.

The acting is uniformly flawless, emotional true, closely held, never forced. Bene Coopersmith and Tavi Gevinson are particular standouts, as is the always excellent Philip Baker Hall. The characters evolve in short monologues, never once running away from the emotional dilemma's life leads them to, the characters dig into themselves, struggling to unveil their inner life. In that way, the script is akin to Shakespeare's monologues wherein the characters' ruminate on their dilemmas, their inner lives, and illuminate us.

It is a small miracle of a film that will delight you and, most remarkably, might, as all great art can do, deepen your humanity.

Written and Directed by Dustin Guy Defa Cast: Michael Cera, Bene Coopersmith, Abbi Jacobson, Michaela Watkins, Philip Baker Hall, , Ben Rosenfield, Tavi Gevinson, Olivia Luccardi.
