ldh's review

I couldn't get into this movie. It's way too long (2h40mn) for what it tried to achieve, and the characters and situations never seem to go anywhere. The two leads, a woman and her aloof father, did not feel well drawn enough to me and played rather on stereotypes of dysfunction rather than a genuine relationship. I recognize that the performances were solid overall, but the writing took my appreciation down a notch.
