| Thoughtful, likeable. Meaningful too.
This movie is not about feeling sorry for the protagonists. It is about the conflicting desires, values, opportunities that make our lives an unholy mess from time to time. The place and time chosen make for believable interactions berween very different people living through very different, if intermingled, crises. This is not about good or bad people or about winners and losers. It is about being human, the predicaments thereof, the tasks, the sorrows and the loves. I welcomed it . Oh, there is a gunshot : paintball, color green...
