Psychological social drama and just a good movie. A guide to survive in a big city. Comedy and drama intertwine and harmonize. Actors perfectly entered the role. Characters create an exciting game.

The story is a good one but the movie is not. I think the problem is all the actors, except for Billy Nighy, are really, really bad. I have never seen such a large group of actors in one presentation that do not have any acting skills. How the talented Mr. Nighy got involved in this mess we will never know.

It appears that most reviewers sought an adrenaline-filled action thriller or jazzy melodrama. This is not one of that too-common coin. Rather, like most films in which the quietly brilliant Bill Nighy appears, this one is delicate, smooth, evocative, relevant to just about every human who is not trying to escape being human (or is working to escape the madness of modern society and return to being just human).<br/><br/>This film honorably expands the canon of interwoven lifelines each of which, like the Borromean rings, supports and enriches other already-solid stories. Like Crash, 360, Magnolia and Hereafter, all of the characters are entirely plausible, especially when they find themselves coping with unfamiliar and threatening circumstances. Most rise to opportunity for self-improvement; a few find a chute to the pit.<br/><br/>Like most truly mind-expanding (dare one say &quot;spiritual&quot;?) movies, this one faces the conscious viewer with a series of &quot;I&#39;ve been there too&quot; and &quot;what would I do?&quot; and &quot;who would help me?&quot; moments. And for the generous of heart, two persistent questions: How have I been helped along by people with no reason to get involved but their own generous mindsets; and What opportunities to help others, and thereby myself and my world, are presenting themselves in this moment?<br/><br/>Quiet, compelling, and worth a slot in any ethics or social-psychology class.
