How not to do a revolution
I watched this because I felt down and it looked like a comedy, but it made me want to die.
The trailer makes you believe that the movie is about youth taking the power with some kind of snowballing social movement that turn into an interesting maneuver that could become historical.
But in the end, it's just a dramatic comedy about young friends in a colocation. some stuff happens, and the main characters tries to wake everyone up with her marxist ideas. But it doesn't work and everyone hates her.
So the movie moves on into a regular comedy. Until the end where she says "We will fight no matter what ! " Yeah, I bet. Worst revolution ever.
Anyhow, it got some interesting discordian ideas that could be applied in real like, like saying "Hi I got a Master's degree in Architecture" before you take someone's order in McDonalds, to make everyone understand that you're not at your place and society is messing with youth. The problem is that the movie forgets about this real quick. Half an hour of useless teenage drama drowns the movies' initial point.
The message is painfully obvious (said out loud actually), that's not any of filmaking works.
