Ultimately, the film asks us, How do we keep the experiences of our lives, as experiences? What do we experience that we treasure, and why? How do we avoid flattening and cutting those experiences into anecdotes? What do our experiences mean to us, and what do we do with them? --How do we build our notion of what we want to be, in life, and how do we seek that?
I think I shall have to ponder these points for a bit.
