Very subtly magical, lonely feeling, surreal, mystical, mysterious and kinda homely and coming of age-esc. I adore this style in films and games but I wasn t sure if there was a term for it.

I understand my question is likely not so simple to answer but if anyone understands what I mean and has a response I d love to hear it!
