This does an amazing job of capturing a feeling that I think can be hard to get at – a sad nostalgia that seems specific to family. It reminds me of the gently sad moments at the end of christmas night. And that it holds all of this up while avoiding much of the typical narrative film trappings is even more impressive. It is a distilled punch to the gut.
