Good intentions - but - ultimately flawed film
1 November 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A crash. As a result how a person may evaluate what's really important in life. This is not an altogether unfamiliar scenario and one that can be done well.

This film struck me as distinctly not knowing where it stood. Was it a full-on soul searching drama. Was it a light comedy? Was it an off the cuff indie film? Was it a road film? It seemed to jump from each to each depending on the directors mood I guess. I know well enough that a film could be several things but in this case it was clear as day, as least for me, that the director could not piece the film together to build any tension or rhythm.

I could not join the dots. It seems as if the characters underwent no transformation. The characters were mildly interesting at best and struck me as selfish. The dialogue was uninteresting. Jean Seberg's poster reminded me that two people talking about nothing could be fascinating, as in Godard's "a bout de soufflé" (breathless). Not here.

I saw Bergman's 'Summer with Monika' which has two young people living on an island for a summer. That film had tension, passion and ultimately a conclusion that we cared about. Just when this film couldn't get any worse he goes and gets a coma. Who cares. "I Know. It's Serious" Morrissey. Thankyou.
