This movie is very special. It's true that the synopsis kind of is telling you a lot about the actual plot, but still "Come, Closer" was an amazing movie in my opinion.

You have different stories, but all of them are somehow connected. (It's sort of an anthology film.) Not only because of the topic, but some characters and scences are connected to each other.

Some of the parts are a little bit weird, but they make sense. You get the feeling, that the stories are REAL. And I mean REAL. Because I can read that in a lot of reviews for dramas, but I often don't agree, because they often are overly dramatic or at least at some points you can't feel it's real. In contrast, “Come, Closer” is real the whole time, not only because of the great acting, but because of the genuine stories. You feel like you’re sitting right next to the characters and listening to their conversations. 20 minutes in this movie equals 20 minutes in real time, so there’s not a lot of plot. The stories are sad, but it’s a special kind of sad. Not the one that makes you cry for hours, but the one that makes you think about what you saw and that leaves you melancholic, dull and chastened.

The way the movie is shot and the use of music emphasize the movie’s stifling atmosphere. The character’s conversations and feelings are on the spotlight. It’s tense and you don’t need the music to make it more dramatic, so they didn’t use any music in these situations. But if they used music, I really liked it itself. :)

I guess a lot of you won’t like the movie, because it’s lengthy and doesn’t have much of a plot, so it might be very boring for you. So, if you’re looking for something melodramatic and with a lot of plot twists that’ll surprise you – you better not watch “Come, Closer”.

You should watch “Come, Closer” if you want to see an authentic movie that takes you into real life, without a bunch of plot twists, but great acting. And if you want to see something different from the usual romantic and melodramatic movies/dramas we all know.

Please don’t stop during the first story, I think the better parts are the ones after the introduction. ^^ If you really can’t help it, skip the first ~10 minutes but give the other stories a chance. ;)

This is one of the independent films that ive seen that really kind of makes no sense. The movie is exactly how they synopsis describes it. The story is basically dialogue between 5 different couples. Theres no plot outside of that. Each couple only gets 20 minutes of screen time to tell their story. I would be fine with this if there were solutions in the end. Some of the stories don't even make any sense. You dont understand what was the writer's reason for writing that particular story. Anyways the acting was really good by the entire cast and they did what they could with thier 20 minutes. This isnt a must watch movie and it definitely wont be memorable but its a quick time waster.
