The overpowering things about this movie were the feelings that it managed to capture. The first story (which, for those who complain the second one is too long, is shorter in some versions) has a darker, lonelier quality to it. The second story (which didn't go on long enough for me) was light-hearted and happy in a weird sort of way. Principally, this movie turns around a place and a theme rather than a set of characters and a single plot. As with any serious artistic endeavor, the important thing is the feeling. Watch and feel, rather than analyzing-at least the first time. For those who say it has no plot, well, it has more plot than those movies you like! It has TWO plots! Twice as much as most movies! The other important quality, for me, was the subtlety of how everything was fitted together. Much more is suggested than actually said. In particular, watch for the first scene Faye shows up in! It's much earlier in the movie than you might expect.

this is definitely definitely great. we watched this in my film class and is this film a crazy one! the second part is hilarious! the lead actor talking to the soap bar saying something like, "why didn't you take care of yourself? now you're all fat" not realizing it's not the same soap but a a new replacement..something like that. funny!! yet with substance.
