I’ve read a few reviews of the film, and as far as what I've read, they have kept mum about the events and the plot besides the couple of sentences you have read. They were right, saying anything beyond that will ruin the surprise the film has in store. It’s a good one, and the film definitely takes on the topic of relationships in a different level, something poetic, perhaps.
Most of the attention has been turned to Ethan, nudging the film in his point of view. We have access to his inner turmoils about his relationship with Sophie, while we only have the receiving end of hers. The characters were able to portray the pangs of being in a relationship, and everything that it entails, that it allows you to put yourself in their position and question what you would do in their stead. It was also filmed in a really nice house; the set itself adds to the charm of the film.
It was a great film; it took me by surprise, and while the approach is unique, it doesn't take away the essence of the message it’s trying to portray.
