A gutsy, entertaining, original film.

Well worth your time, this dramedy is completely unique with some great performances from the two leads. They could have done so much more with this premise - but this minimalist approach is refreshing.

good movie

It was sad and funny at the same time. Really makes you think " what would I do with the remaining few weeks " before the end of the earth.. I really like this movie...


one of those movies that leaves you feeling down. The actors seem depressed and bored too.
