Beautifully Stupid
13 March 2014 | by (Poconos, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

The setting is beautiful. The initial plot set-up is loaded with potential. Camera work and, except for the lead's perpetual deadpan, acting is adequate. But the major plot devises are simply too incredulous to overcome. We never learn precisely why a person, presumably overcome with the exposure of his eloping with his sister-in-law, drives off a bridge he's negotiated his whole life. Apparently neither the extended family nor the local community think it all inappropriate that their chief source of revenue is a whore house. Pivoting clues miraculously turn up or spill out unsolicited from blabbering mouths. All such commotion tied around an inner narrative of a dead-beat dad reuniting with his saint-like daughter. So ridiculous and unabsorbing is this film I managed to turn it off with just 13 minutes to go before finishing it this morning for the privilege of writing this COMMENT. Remember, just because it's foreign doesn't mean it cannot be a mess.
