As another reviewer stated here, this feels like a light comedy. But there is so much more to it. And to have the ability to mix the lightness (especiall in the way many scenes are staged and shot) with the philosophical question it raises is just plain great. It might not be your cup of tea or you might think that some people are reading things into the movie that aren't there. But seeing a trailer for another movie done by this director, I am pretty sure, that those things are meant to be there.

Nevertheless, it doesn't make this movie flawless. And quite a few people will dislike it. But as with many movies, you should be able to tell, if you like the (visual) style and tone of the movie, when it reaches the ten minute mark. If it didn't convince you by then, you could stop watching, because it won't have any different effect by the end of it. On the other hand, if you are "captured" (no pun intended) into the world, you will have a truly great experience watching this movie.
