This is a wonderful piece of character exploration. The whole movie feels more like a play, with characters entering a leaving but never showing us anything outside of Elizabeth and Stephen's home from the moment the dinner party starts to the moment it ends. Despite the somewhat goofy english title, this movie explores some of the deepest topics of intimacy among family and friends, and shows how maybe we don't actually know the people we love.
