The life of a man told in reverse. Throughout the 20 years period that the film covers, we see how his character changes and is affected by the decisions he had made.

My favourite quote from the film:
The rain I'm looking is the same rain she's looking at

My impressions:

A man goes through many changes
Some are definitely of his own vocation
Some are forced unto him
Some are given and taken by him

Opportunities or circumstances
The difference might not be discernible

One act leads to another
Consequences known only in future
Who can predict or know
What will be then
We live for the day
We do not know the past
Will catch up with us one day

Then we decide
Which path to take next
