nice, smart and nothing more
9 July 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

a young man. a middle age woman. and a love story like huge pizza. cultural references, a black boy, video game industry slices, disorganized family, picture from Hamburg, few drops of cinnamon and milk, old recipes but a good result. a smart comedy , without great ambitions but with delicate since of measure. and this is good point.because each aspect of modern world is presented in sweet light. because The Graduade and Bob Dylan, the unhappy childish father, the sister and her relation with girlfriend, the negotiation with Chinese investors and small lesson about basic values all is mixture of nostalgic and realistic vision about a small universe and its profound roots.
