Endearing & Atmospheric!
An idiosyncratic, wistful, occasionally melancholy take on the rom-com genre, with a charming pair of leads. Early 2000s St. Petersburg in its slightly shabby grandeur is very much a supporting character. The height and depth of the frame, along with a variety of off-kilter angles are used to a striking effect. I liked how much the story was visually rather than through dialogue.
