Are there this kind of man in the world ?
28 April 2009 | by ichocolatSee all my reviews

I watched this movie, and my reaction was mixed. I do not enjoy this movie as much as I hoped to (maybe because this movie is a tad slow and without climax, and because it dealt with matters that I do not feel connected to) but I know that this issue does exist.

The feeling that one have grown up and have responsibilities they have to shoulder, i.e having a family and jobs and own life, but at same time feels that one is not wanting to have all that, is real. There are some people who couldn't face reality and just wanted to break and return to their older life.

This movie dealt with real issues, and it does so without having to impose onto viewers whether to accept or not that this issue happens.

The length of the movie is not too long, but viewers who cannot comprehend the issue would find this movie a bore.
