Wow, this is without a doubt the worst movie I have ever had to suffer through. Not only is the first 80 minutes of it shot in black and white
yeah, black and white! - but there was also very little dialogue in
This movie was mostly about watching an estranged couple, consisting on an obese white man and a pregnant Thai woman sitting around in a small apartment in Bangkok doing each their own stuff and without talking together. It was like watching something shot out from an actual life experience of a boring couple.
I watched most of the movie on fast forward x32 speed. I kid you not. There was that little happening in 90% of all the scenes throughout the movie. It was all just a lot of prolonged footage of scenes that could have been told better in color and in half the time.
Sure this is a pseudo artsy movie, but come on. Enough is enough. This movie was just too much.
Dealing with issues such as Westerners traveling to Thailand to find love, and the complexity and problems that might follow in the wake given the differences between cultures. But it was done with too much of everything. I am from Denmark myself, and have been married to a Chinese and now with one from the Philippines. So I can relate to aspects of the movie, but I doubt that this movie in any way express life situations for any couple in general. The movie was just downright boring and dragged on in shots that were too long.
The only good thing I found about the movie, well two things given the cheap price for it on Amazon's marketplace, was Danish actor Nicolas Bro was in this movie. Personally I don't count myself a fan of his work, but it was a bold move for him to do this particular movie.
I am sure there is an audience out there for this particular movie and this particular weird genre of movies - especially since it can score a 5.9 score here on IMDb. But, personally, I wasn't in that audience, and I have never been so bored with a movie as I was with this one. This is without a doubt a 1 out of 10 rating from me.
