Thraves’s elegantly inelegant feature debut - a gentle, meandering look at the often awkward encounters between an insecure, young artisan and his friends and new girlfriend as they drift through the world - is a film that is every bit as ugly, beautiful, sensual, troubling, unstable, and unpredictable as its maladroit, twentysomething protagonists.
