Don't believe the negative reviews. This is an artistic masterpiece. The mysterious revelation at the end just adds to the beauty. For parents: A little minor violence, some swearing, some drinking, no smoking, no consumerism. A bit sad in parts. Plot moves quickly.

Actually it can be good, but the plot is so fast and a little bit random. You just need to watch trailer, it's better than the movie.
