  • A highly original work by an artist who follows his own vision - wherever it leads.

  • It features lots of walking and talking and drinking, and occasional screechy rock interludes. Like a Richard Linklater movie, in other words. Only less fun.

  • It is romantic and hallucinogenic, with an edge of softcore erotic sleaze.

    October 5, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • the general style, both in terms of pace, dialogue and visuals is somewhat difficult to follow, and demands the viewer's full attention in order to appreciate it fully, not to mention a knack of absorbing the chaos.

    October 27, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's a bit much and an overload of the senses at times, but the feelings always come across as honest and I couldn't help myself rooting for the main characters.

    September 17, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • It might've sufficed as a short film.
