Heartrending flashback drama, although a mite novelettish
The film sags a little, its romance rather novelettish
(Jay and Daisy sit for hours, talking like teenagers) -- yet even this is part of the point, because Love itself is an anti-climax.
Nights, they confess one by one on Merek's bed under the eaves: fraught loves and burdensome sins arrayed in novelettish
The fight scenes are risibly over the top, the story novelettish
