Disarmingly lived-in, even warm for a study of romantic skepticism and ambivalence. Concepty, yes, but rings with truth.
Copies ≠ originals. Second viewings ≠ firsts. Binoche still magic. Shape still beguiling. Themes a bit emphatic?
Clear antecedents among Kiarostami's metafilmic tradition and in various European art-film lineages, but distinct, curious, and inventiveits own thing.
