'The Beach'...for grown-ups......
21 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie earns from me a 10 out of 10, with superb script and music sound track. You could call it an adult version of "The Beach". Set in an exotic location the story follows the adventures of two mid-life executives searching their souls for the meaning of life and their lives.There will be a lot of people including myself who can identify with this film. Why this picture scores so highly is the wondrous script examining Buddha/Zen philosophy.Don't be put off by that...as the scenario is totally absorbing done with humor, intelligence and thoughtfulness. A believable "love triangle" is on one level at the heart of the story, or to put it more bluntly a 3-some, and my only 'gripe' about the film is that it is one of those(perhaps rare) instances where more scenes focusing on the intimacy would of been appropriate , but who knows if on cable some scenes were cut. The acting is solid , tender and wonderfully underplayed. But the music score..well, fantastic; no other word for it and I for one will be racing around looking to buy the music CD. Lucky I found this "gem" purely by chance on TV, its opening with the enchanting music is mesmerizing and what follows equally compelling. Seems like Leonardo found the wrong beach!
