A straight up quirky and hilarious film that alsoshows quippy dialog and dramatical family drama together seemlessly
A soft, nuanced and quirky take on coming-of-age. Ayoade is a gem, and I'd love to see more.
Love this movie. Such a feel good coming of age story with an incredible sound track.
Visually appealing, interesting storytelling, explores adolescence and relationships.
Have to say it’s amazing for my 14 yr old self 😐
Slick direction and great performances lead to a funny and touching film.
The cast is phenomenal but the twee aesthetic won’t be for everyone. This is a very well intentioned and entertaining movie though
Who cares about the plot? It's so aesthetically pleasing and that songs by Alex Turner... You just have to watch it!
Lovely story about an inner world of a boy and his perception of the world around him. Also the movie has a great soundtrack.
A unique movie, with a calm and beautiful atmosphere. You have to get used to the slow rythm tho.
