The commodification of experience is told through such a distinct, observational formalism in which ambiance and slight gestures, movements, and brief glances effectively elucidate the spontaneous but subtle nature of connection detached from commercial mystification. A deeply universal experience expressed with impeccable naturalism, First Time is a visual tableau of movement contained within a static frame, one ripe with detail that rewards the observational and adventurous viewer. The artifice is pronounced in more technical respects but what it bestows captures such wonderments of living in its depiction of body language and unsaid urges and feelings left unexpressed that it manages to be emotional striking despite such a simple conceptual framework. Also, a pretty good vibe movie with wonderful use of non-diegetic musical arrangements and what I perceived to be diegetic sound.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
