    "why do you take photographs?"
    this is slow cinema to a t - every scene feels subtly drawn
    out, less like a film and more like taking a peek into the
    day to day life of the person right across from you.
    there's a distinct lack of a dreamy, filmy haze to it - which

    patiently and beautifully too. it's nothing profound - just
    permits you the slow realisation, as with our main heroine,
    that we aren't alone in these feelings. sometimes connecting
    with others can make us both brave and weak.
