I agree it is a low key movie, on the order of "In a Day." There isn't "something big," that you missed other than the subtle way the way the relationship developed. I've watched it twice in the last 2 months. It's relaxing. It might just reflect the different reasons we watch movies. I watch movies that help me relax not ones that are exciting. I used to watch movies like that, but have drifted away. The movie clicked with me, but I can see how, if things don't mesh for someone else, they'd think it boring.

Ya know, you brought up a great point.
I, too, like a relaxing movie most of the time. I suppose I was in the wrong mood for this style of movie when I watched it. That can make the difference between liking or disliking a movie quite often.
