Worth living for

Difficult subject matter, and nice/decent effort to make it feel light and refreshing somehow. There are quite a few quirky/strange things that are happening here, that are weird to the point they can be taken as light entertainment. Which is never easy when it comes to the subject matter of suicide.

The main actor said he didn't try to concentrate on the fact that his character was suicidal nor did he think that that was the case. How else could you find humor in something like this? And while this walks the thin line nicely, there have been better movies on the subject matter. Still a nice try with some more than decent acting and a nice story overall.

Funny, tough and tender

One of a kind drama with minimum cliché parts. The movie is kept absolutely simple in conversations, shots and cast. It's often really quiet but without 'chuddy' parts (never protracting). Not really the kind of movie for a sociable evening but a very humorous drama winning over with likable, charming personalities. One of the few movies full of character with parts that may soak you up entirely.

In categories:

Narrative: 8/10, the serious topic of 'losing the will to live on' is shown in an entertaining but absolutely appropriate way. The movie brims over with sensitive insights on Mike's mind and the mindset people in his situation may have in general. Also it awakens major lust for life and may be a great watch for anyone having feelings like him. It has a wacky sense of humour and most of the 'simple kept' conversations want you to think about the sub line, but not in a very intellectual way. When Mike and Miranda meet, part of the story gets easily predictable. But the way the two main characters get to know each other, communicate and interact is affecting, lovingly intimate and absolutely unlike 'Hollywood' standard pictures. This in contrast to the (enjoyable) interactions between Mike and his mother builds the core of this movie.

Characters: 9/10, the acting is absolutely believable and especially the two main actors do a great job. If I may steal the word from another review, endearing is the perfect word to describe Mike's character. An absolutely innocent mind, who does everything quirky and honest heartedly. And this is the movie's 'foundation' - his unique personality, which is easily likable and purely human.

Cinematography: 7/10, filmed in a smooth way, guiding throughout the plot suiting music and story. The emotions are transported really convincingly, some shots are quite elaborate and unusual but without ever being over the top. A lot of scenes are filmed static but through great perspectives and perspective changes it comes off dynamically and properly done.

Music: 9/10, The music always fits and underlines situations perfectly as well as taking over the part of communication and narration. A blend of atmospheric sounds and well picked songs.

Difficult topic addressed with talent

Young people's most common drama is also the less talked about.

This movie talks about a teenagers who "wants to leave" with a sensitive and dark sense of humour (As the movie does not say the word, I won't say it either). It talks about different aspects of death without falling into the maudlin and compassionate trap. I guess there's no other way to do it. The common Hollywood way would have insisted on an initial trauma and there would have been a lot of tears. It would have found a justification for the "departure". And it is well known that a fiction representing a tearful and motivated "departure" can cause epidemic "departures". In this movie, things are as they are with no motive, as it frequently is in real life. In contrast with the sensitive and slightly distant beginning, the movie shows an accident in a very harsh way.

I like the important rhythm breaks emphasizing the slow contemplative scenes, as well as dynamic ones. The filming is very clean, sometimes uncommon and in good coherence with the narrative and sound track. The young actor has a promising carrier. I was afraid he might be stuck in the same attitude for the whole movie, but at the end, he shows a wide palette of reactions.

If you're concerned about showing this movie to teenager, I would probably let him watch it if he's not too stupid and accompanied. I'm not the type of guys prohibiting movies to kids, but in this case, you want to avoid misinterpretations and a trivialization of death.
