One of the reviews for the two-act play this movie was based on included, “Nothing happens, twice.” If that doesn’t get the general feeling down, then maybe knowing the plot will. It’s about two guys who are waiting for Godot (as the name suggests).
This whimsical movie captured the hearts of a generation and gave us some adorable characters that are still popular today. But the movie itself is actually pretty lackluster in terms of excitement. Especially compared to later Ghibli works.
