The Future – Miranda July (2011)

Weird, this film is entirely not my genre. A romantic drama type of film. Somehow I read something about it when it came out that made me want to see it. It took a while before I did, because I never saw it anywhere until recently.

We follow a bored and boring young couple who decide to start to live for their last month (after which they will adopt a cat). The man goes to work for charity, the girl finds another friend. The film is very slow and very minimalist with strange dialogues about odd subjects and a couple of strange elements. Nothing much really happens, but I think the director tries to make their characters (and the viewer) wonder about simple things in life.

Not my genre and indeed, not really my film.
