Soft, subtle drama about love in unexpected places. A male prostitute has found himself growing numb to his emotions from spending his days being used for other men’s pleasure; his next-door neighbour is a woman whose relationship with her boyfriend is anything but satisfying. Through chance encounters and day-to-day experiences, these two manage to strike up a meaningful friendship and ease the disaffected nature of their lives. It’s not a spectacular movie, but that’s actually a good reason to watch it; its charm is in not trying too hard, and the performances by both the leads are excellent and very endearing.
