Andrea: [crying] Yesterday I went for a walk to the lake. And I was thinking that the world is huge. And that human nature, the Big Bang when it all exploded, it brought tons of things: the lakes, the mountains, all the animals. And it also brought human beings -

Andrea: I sound like a school book - but human beings are much more complex. While a tree is just a tree, a person is something more locked off. It's like we're stuck inside the soap opera of life. And we have to live, we don't have a choice. ...

Wake Me When It's Over
5 October 2007 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

If the point of the movie was suburban teenagers bored to distraction, then it achieved its purpose quite well. The problem with this is it also bores the viewer to distraction. Telling a story cinematically doesn't achieve its end with visual gimmicks alone like cross processed film and home movie additions without backing the story up with dialog that the viewer (those over 15 years of age) can relate to. This type of adolescent story has been done over and over again and for me, this film doesn't achieve anywhere near the rating this site has given it.

The story itself seems to meander at its own pace using the absence of dialog to set the mood. In a sense, this seems to be in step with the emotional life of teenagers where dialog is at a minimum and the expression of emotion is not fully formed. This was a realistic way of portraying the subjects and the kids did a good job of bringing this off.
