    Beautiful. It could be a stage play, for how much it relies on characters talking with one another, mostly in dialogues, and interacting in pairs. There aren't many flashy moments of camerawork and editing (except a couple really interesting ones, ex.: the one at the cafe, the one at the escalator etc.) and there are many long takes of people just talking. That being said, I loved this film. Divided in three parts, stories only connected by the theme that carries the whole thing, the movie follows these sometimes intense, other times casual, always authentic conversations, avoiding easy answers, exploring the impact of fate and fortune (and misfortune) and the weight of our choices. There is tragedy and there is romance and there is comedy and there is loneliness and heartbreak and doubt and so much more. Nothing is alienating: even when a character does something weird or bad, I never felt them as anything more (or less) than people. 1 day 2 hours ago
