Well, it is after I lost in translation, found my way out by taking this waltz. :) Absolute brilliant piece of cinema by Sarah Polley and exceptional versed cast by Michelle Williams and the rest of the crew. It took a little bit of a patience to stick with very first quarter of the movie, but once the movie proven its style, it was been a mini hurricane with full of constant emotional stirrings.what I most appreciate of this piece of work is the non-judgmental unveiling of the scenes. All characters are pictured with equal values, no character right or wrong over one another, rather the movie deal with a wide array of human emotions and convincing for us to accept them as in the original way of how they are.The frames leading from one to another brilliantly condensing another story with thousands of words, in that way the movie is very much economical in its' expression, further the theme all together depict greater space for self exploration rather been judgmental or suppressing what you feel as what should be there in in one's life.This is exactly what I personally expect from all kind of fine arts. We all can be been in down that road of not knowing what is missing, belonging neither to earth nor to the moon and living in between, longing to experience something unknown or something which has lifted away from so called reality. If you too have ever felt the same, what else would be there for you except taking this waltz you feel.


Wow. Good actors, Michelle Williams, Seth Rogan, Luke Kirby, and Sarah Silverman. Interesting subject matter, falling in love outside your marriage with your neighbor across the street. Totally bad movie. Sarah Polley, an actor in her previous life (Avonlea on the Disney Channel) wrote and directed the film. The trailer made it look interesting, the film goes to outer space and beyond. Weird.


Where do I begin... I don't want to waste my time on this movie so I'll try and keep things short: Don't see this movie. The main cast is more than capable of pulling off a good performance so I'm not sure why they were so horrible in this. Seth Rogan's performance was OK I guess but literally everyone in this movie was so awkward and flat it was actually pretty astounding. Almost everything in this movie was cliché to the point where you know exactly what's about to happen even when at a few points you're not entirely sure because of how awkward the characters are being to the point where you can't help but feel "What the f*ck is going on right now?". I've wasted enough time on this movie, I'm not going to waste any more time fixing that run on sentence. It's corny as all h*ll, there are more than a handful of cringy moments. There's one nude scene where you can tell the director just put it there to check off some feminist checklist (and I have absolutely NOTHING wrong with feminism, I do however have something wrong scenes so forced I can't help but feel the need to cement up my *sshole). I would only watch this movie if you have some sort of fetish to not finish a movie. I have NO idea how this movie got so many good reviews. Perhapse they're from fans of the director? I've never seen any of the director's other work, but I've heard she's very good. This movie IS NOT an example of this.


No, this didn't work for me. Slow moving, not romantic, not funny, not charming or quirky (in a good way) mostly just weird and at times making no sense whatsoever. Maybe I should stop watching these Indie films, I obviously don't "get" them.Michelle Williams plays a seemingly happily married woman (to Seth Rogan) who falls for the neighbor across the street. Her performance is good but I never understood her character, there's no real angst in her relationship, she just gets bored I guess. For whatever reason there's also lot of (pointless) nudity from all the women, the shower scene after the water aerobics. Williams is naked a ton; showering, peeing, having sex. More pubes than I've seen in a long time. Sarah Silverman is here too, also naked and unfunny. A lot of comedians in an unfunny jumbled mess of a movie. 7/26/14
