It also resembles the movie “500 Days of Summer”, by the way it is approached, drawings, memories, even in songs. Music more “indie”, even in quotes like: “Radiohead, Vampire Weekend, Rex T. ..”. The best thing about this movie is that it is an antidote to all this, d... read more

Overall, a decent movie. A little slower paced, and off the wall, it definitely drew me in and kept me interested. A quieter comedy, that also deals with some more serious issues in the main character's life, but I quite enjoyed it.

A good movie

“To be honest, I had absolutely no idea what this movie was about before watching it but since it was suggested by one of my favorite Listal members,  I thought I might as well check it out. Well, I’m glad I gave it a shot because I really liked the damned thing a lot and, in my opinion, it provided one of the best depictions of a psychiatric ward I have ever seen. Indeed, I have both some professional and personal experience regarding such environment and what they provided in this movie was pretty much pitch-perfect (I have to admit that the patients were probably most of the time slightly too cheerful though). Furthermore, the main character was really good thanks to a solid performance by Keir Gilchrist and I was completely able to identify with this guy. Unfortunately, they were a c” read more
