Not bad, not philosophically over-the-top nostalgic
26 March 2015 | by CyniLogicalSee all my reviews

And the film has showed us that young males under 35 years of age, can be still awkwardly called "Man Child". it's sometimes quite difficult and troublesome for a young guy to deal with so many things at the same time. sometimes they don't even know how to deal with them. they have to use 'sense and sensibility' to distinguish what they really like, love and want to do for their whole lives after they have been tagged as "adults", yet deep down in their hearts, they are still so afraid of taking responsibility for themselves and those who around them.

This film actually told us that live in New York might not be THAT great. Lot of time, you're just getting by and getting older and older at the same time. There are things and places that you do want to get back or revisit, but once you made those possible, the feelings might not what you really wanted. Time changed everything, and your financial status would also twist your point of view to almost everything. But the most fragile and irrevocable thing is the relationship, once break up, it'll never feel the same, just like a shattered mirror, even you have found and retrieved every broken piece and put them together, the image would never look the same.

This is not a bad film, and it reminds me a film I enjoyed greatly, "Old Joy (2006)". It's about two old friends spent couple of days in Oregon's wildness. They were still good friends, but they knew that they had been growing apart, because everything changed when they grew older. If you enjoyed watching this one, you might like to check that one out, which in my opinion, is much better.
