"Tramps" was an indie film that was mentioned on a podcast that I listened to, and when I looked it up, I saw that it had Mike Birbiglia in it, so I decided to watch it.
The story of the film is good, but not great. It's not particularly original, but the character arc is well-developed enough that the film still feels somewhat fresh. I liked both of the lead characters, despite their flaws. I also found enjoyment in the film's thoroughly witty dialogue, which, while never hilarious, moved along at quite a brisk pace.
I thought that the filmmaking of the film was solid, but not great. It definitely has a very indie feel to it, with often handheld camera. The cinematography is not usually nauseating, though, and it works to make the story feel more realistic. The music of the film is also extremely good. The actors all do well in their roles. Both of the lead actors are strong, and Michal Vondel and Mike Birbiglia both give enjoyable supporting turns.
Overall, I liked "Tramps". It isn't amazing, but it is a charming story that is executed pretty well. If crime romances are your type of film, I would recommend you check it out.
