Somewhere in the endless steppes of Central Asia lies a treasure. One man holds the key to it, a fragment of an ancient map. But in his restless quest, Charles isn't looking for fame or glory. He's looking for a way to heal his wounded soul. He's looking for love. Ulzhan felt it the first time she laid eyes on him. Written by
Harrison Ford meets Cold Mountain meets the Asian Steppes
Torreton looks like a French Harrison Ford - who confronts adversity with puppy dog eyes and a grimace. The plot is Cold Mountain which is itself I guess the Odyssey - a long journey in the company of others, where a series of encounters take place, each a bit stranger than the next. As others have said *nothing* in this movie objectively makes sense. I can't think of a single scene that could happen the way it is portrayed in real life. Not one. Certainly not the beginning of the movie where the principal character is going to walk across the desert, dressed in somewhat formal clothes carrying a satchel? Or the one where he's arrested by the security folks and then let go with apologies and money? To they guy who sells words, to the girl who just decides to go with him. I don't buy it.
