An intimate and philosophical character study often credited with inventing the conversation film.

One long, varied conversation. Gregory is well spoken. He is an engaging story-teller. ... And that's all there is. It's a fine dialogue piece, but it never once felt like I was watching an actual film. Mildly interesting all the way through. Not the most entertaining.

"Who am I? Why am I here? Where do I come from? And where am I going?" For those who enjoy intellectual screenplays with a singular location of the premise and non-moving plots, this would be an entertaining treat. A premise similar to 12 Angry Men, Rope, Clerks or The Breakfast Club. Requires patience and an open mind. Wally meets-up with an old friend named Andre and converse about almost everything such as technology, opposing views, the future, realty vs. dreams, monotony, love, death, emotions, goals, marriage, enjoying the small things we have, societies pitfalls, science and relationships. Simple as it may be the ideas and points are thorough, hard-hitting and authentic. In the words of Andre - "The world comes in quite fast."
