If John Tesh were a movie he'd be this movie.
8 December 2009 | by (http://sitenoise-atthemovies.blogspot.com/) – See all my reviews

There is Pop and Alternative; there's Blockbuster and Art-house. A third wheel to those pairings might as well be New Age. That's what this film is: new age.

I liked the poster. I like Blue. And I liked the blurb I read somewhere: "a young woman ... is overwhelmed by despair and depression after her fiancé's sudden death. The film follows her touching emotional journey, revealing how her first love came to be and how she copes with the shocking loss." But yikes! This film is bad. It seems more like a shot at giving some J-idols and starlets a chance at big screen time with integrity but just because they don't have to act stupid doesn't mean they act well. Maybe they do act well but the film is so overwrought with phony angst that it's hard to tell. The music, and there is lots of it, is boring new age dreck, and I don't mean just the soundtrack. There are several full on scenes of someone tinkling on the piano for endless minutes of boredom. The direction is of the style that lulls you to sleep by trying to force a pace of real life. In real life hours go by and nothing happens but I don't want to see a movie of that. If I see someone get into their car and drive off down a really long rode at 5 miles per hour it means I can watch them for a very long time but I don't think it makes for whoop dee doo cinéma verité. This is the John Tesh of movies. Stay away.
