This is the first featured film by Miranda Jury, a multiple-talented artist who decided to communicate with the world by making this movie. And, yes, it somehow works effectively. At least, people at Cannes and Sundance Film Festival were fallen in love with her film and couldn’t help but handed her honorable awards, namely the Golden Camera at Cannes and the special jury prize at Sundance. In fact, Miranda Jury writes the script, stars as a leading actress and directs the movie all by herself.
The movie tells a story of people trying to connect with each other in various ways. The symbolic features are heavily used in the film as well as clever and meaningful dialogues. Being a contemporary artist, Miranda Jury stylishly combines her artistic works with the movie to convey her message to the world. There are both moments of joy and sadness. In one particular scene when a 6-year-old kid was chatting online with an anonymous stranger, regarding the words "back and forth, forever", I laughed myself like crazy. Thinking about how she could come up with those words and end up the situation in hilarious but sad way still impressed me.
All in all, the movie is enjoyable to watch. If you are bored with the mainstream Hollywood flick, this is your chance to explore a different kind of art.
4 stars out of 5 – recommend to movie lovers.
Back and forth, forever.
