    What starts off as a fairly standard quirky indie rom-com soon blooms into surreal "Man Seeking Woman"-esque territory and becomes absurdly near-brilliant in the process.

    If this doesn't get out there more prominently, if more people, nay, if all the people don't see this, I am going to lose all faith in cinemanity.

    Good stuff. Really good stuff. Perfect sister piece to Dave Made a Maze. Must-watch!

    Dua orang yang menjauhi hubungan percintaan. Bertemu. Memutuskan untuk ngetrip berdua, dengan asas friendship friends trip. Tentu saja mereka lama-lama saling jatuh hati. Perjalanan singkat di akhir minggu, tapi ya saya merasa seolah perjalanan ini dilalui bertahun-tahun. Sebab itu seperti perjalanan ke dalam diri sendiri. Memaknai segala kegilaan, keanehan, dan segala alasan kenapa ia bercokol di dalam diri.

    Dan untuk menemukan solusi.

    Dan film ini dieksekusi dengan baik sekali.

    I enjoyed this film on a Monday afternoon at the 2017 Nashville Film Festival. Had I watched this on a Tuesday, I may have liked it more, or possibly less.

    One of the directors and lead actor were both in attendance and did a Q&A afterwards. It made me like the film even a bit more.

    It's outlandish in many ways. Overall - it's a story about two people falling in love very, very quickly, and it's told in an over-the-top way that is enjoyable, quirky, bizarre, and funny.

    This was so refreshingly unpretentious for a film festival showing. I mean it had it's artsy moments, but those were sprinkled among lots of really relatable, realistic scenes. I loved the concept of squeezing months of relationship development into four days. The director talked about giving it a surreal feel, and I dug that.
