- Reviewed from the 2021 Sundance Film Festival.
Ana Katz’s latest film consists of meandering, disjointed events in which protagonist Sebastian unemotively adapts to the twists and turns life throws at him. His dog won’t be quiet; he loses his job; his mother gets married; he eats a sandwich he finds on the bus; he meets a woman and has a child with her; a meteorite makes the Earth’s atmosphere from four feet up toxic. Relatable, everyday life events.
Charming illustrated segments point to an undercurrent of charisma that never surfaces in what is an otherwise unfortunately bland film, a lack of emphasis making many potentially significant moments fall flat.
