This movie created some dialogue between my wife and I when it was about 3/4 through--and that's always a good thing, right? We could not seem to "figure out" the nature of either of the two main characters. On one hand, the female partner constantly speaks lovingly and encouragingly to her male partner--while the male partner seems to genuinely love and appreciate her as well, and constantly does whatever he thinks will make her happy. After a while, this constant positive reinforcement of each partner for the other seems to ring increasingly odd and unrealistic. Then, to make things even more intriguing, is the fact that the speech tone of these two characters never varies much through the entire movie--even though, from time to time, they verbally claim to be feeling emotions like happiness and sadness. For the viewer, this creates a constant sense that the lives of each of these characters is disturbingly monotonous and dull. To mix endearing attitudes of affection with a sense of monotony and dullness brings a strong sense of irony to the film--and this irony, on some level, feels disturbing; yet, for anyone who has lived long enough, who can't, on some unspoken level, identify with the oddity of it all?
