I watched this movie without knowing anything about it, picking it just because of my favorite actor on the poster. The opening scenes in this movie of friends having dinner were very enjoyable and promising, but sadly it got horribly worse from there. The script is very dull and too theatrical for a movie. I was also not impressed with kind of amature directing that made everything look/feel artificial. Most conversations end up with one character saying something and staring at the horizon and another walking away as if something dramatic of meaningful was said. Even when conversation takes place in a room, where there is no horizon and no reason or place to walk away. A use of red light in romantic scenes felt artificial because of trying to explain every time the "accidental" source of it (like neon commercials outside). These and other similar details left a feeling that you're watching a student made movie.
This movie has everything to be great: good topic, wonderful cast, very well picked filming locations, superb musical score. But the script and directing make it a really really bad one.
