There is so much good about this movie but overall it didn't work for me. These characters are very interesting and the decisions they make even more so, but the film is too slowly paced to deserve its 2 hour and 40 minute runtime. It has funny moments (the ending especially), but they are too distant, it could have very easily been trimmed down. I would not discourage anyone from seeing this film though. Maren Ade seems a great director…
Andrea Arnold, I love you. Once again you provide us with a beautiful look at the complicated life of a young woman. Once again you gift us a film built on emotions, where one single frame filled me with thoughts and feelings I hadn't felt in years. Once again you crafted another masterpiece. Andrea Arnold, I love you.
