"Poetic"?
25 August 2003 | by (Montréal, Québec) – See all my reviews

I guess this is the kind of movie you'll like if you call a sheet of paper totally painted in a single color «art».

Long. Uninteresting (for the scenario part I mean, the visuals are quite good). Falsely "profound". I still can't believe the 3 minutes scene where they are sitting in the desert, looking at each other, than looking at the ground, then looking at each other, etc. No, I don't think action is required for a movie to be good, but I do believe a plot and a decent scenario is always a good idea.

And what to say about the end? When I saw it all I could think of was «I think I saw 10 movies that ended this way», and I felt like laughing (I believe it was supposed to make you cry, not sure, the "ambiance" thing everyone is talking about seems not to have worked on me). I believe listening to the silence is an activity as exciting as watching this movie.
