A very down-to-earth movie
This is probably the most down-to-earth movie I have ever seen. There´s is absolutely nothing that happened in this movie that couldn´t have happened to you or me. Yet, still the film has a solid and interesting dialog, also very down-to-earth.

It took a while to swallow the feeling I got just after the movie. My first thought was: "Oh no, what a week story and what a boring dialog". But after a while I thought the exact opposite. This movie was definitely better than what I first realized.

6+ out of 10, is my rating.
