It's almost hard to explain why I love this movie. It feels like I'm reading a book, rather than watching something.
Facial expressions, body language, and silent attitudes are the essence of this film. It's all about analyzing what you see and how scenery and colors and the crunch of snow determines the mood. All the dialog you need to hear will be shown by the characters' eyes.
As a debut indie film, it's bare, personal, and reliant on being relatable to the audience with the assumption we all know how it feels to like someone, but not have the courage to tell them.
The first time I finished watching this, I just sat still for like ten minutes in the dark, unable to even think of what to do. It felt so silly to close my computer tab and continue on with life. All I could hear was the credit song, "Walk On The Moon" by Asobi Seksu (now a favorite song of mine) replaying in my head, as I wondered what would happen to Aimie and Tran. I actually had to readjust myself back into my own reality because I was so stuck in the story. That's how much of an effect it had on me.
If you like something that feels real or like it could've been taken from your memories, watch this.
it's a simple story line but quite touching, it's very realistic in the way it was filmed
despite not a huge amount happening in the film, the story has stuck in my mind and i think i'm going to watch this again soon :)
overall, i think it's one to watch if you want something that is quite simple yet a nice watch at the same time :)
