It is not often that I say this, because a show or a movie has to be really special, almost near "perfection", to be able to make me say this, but... I adore this series.

Have you watched a tv show or read a book or played a video game and then watched its movie, or vice versa? You have expectations, right? You'll think: "It's going to be so amazing!", or "I bet everyone will be just the same!"... but once you go see it, you realize there have been many changes or everything is completely different; or even just one tiny change has made the entire story completely... well, wrong. I have to be honest, I had those fears before I watched this movie, since this is a series that I came to absolutely adore... and I was not disappointed. If anything, I was most definitely surprised and I fell in love with the characters, the stories, the ambiance, the calming effect of human decency and honesty and the unique, relatable humility that each person showed within this movie and each of its stories.

And I know I say that in a lot of my reviews, of this movies' first three seasons and other series and movies, but I have to tell you that I am being 100% honest in saying that this show has shown me more honesty, humanity, humility, love, understanding, kindness, consideration, and depth within reality and movies/tv shows a-like that I am in awe of its talents.

Calming, uneventful charm.

Nothing really happens in this movie. It’s a bunch of random stories and at times completely out of context conversations between characters you know close to nothing about, and somehow it was truly enticing.

After finishing the movie I truly wished there was a guy like Master with his small diner somewhere in my neighborhood. The small sanctuary after the hard day of work, that sense of a small community the regular clients created.

It would be a crime not to talk about the amazing aesthetics of the show. The camera angles, the lighting, the editing and directing - it all created a beautiful movie that was just pleasant to watch.

The acting left nothing to desire. With characters that are not exactly well defined, it might be tricky to truly present them as unique individuals, but Midnight Diner made it. All performances made me believe these are the people I could potentially meet on the street myself. Normal, relatable people with their normal, mundane lives.

Overall, I have no idea why I liked it so much, but I did and that’s what matters. A movie about technically nothing, yet it never felt boring. I was engaged from first to the last scenes.
