This is not a story about September 11th, it's a story about every day after.
A year after his father's death, Oskar, a troubled young boy, discovers a mysterious key he believes was left for him by his father and embarks on a scavenger hunt to find the matching lock.

A generally good drama but with a rather unsutisfying conclusion with the mystery key!!

I'm stupid. Very stupid. I cannot understand the deep meaning of this movie. I manage to watch it over 1h to understand my deep stupidity ...and my stupidity still prefers watching sweet-bitter comedies and CGI based adventures than this "artistic" bullshit waste of time. I prefer my stupidity and I expect from websites like trakt.tv to protect my "stupid time" wasted on movies like this.

This movie explains so well what it's like to be autistic. I adore it for being 'about' it without ever beating anyone over the head with the diagnosis or sensory overload, just SHOWING everything in such a graceful way.

People might not like Oscar, think he's obnoxious, but it's so difficult to navigate a universe, never mind the world, that really has no instruction manual.

Everyone's frustration and everyone's pain is extremely well portrayed on so many levels that I can never get tired of seeing new details every time I rewatch.
