Storyline

Neil (Ben Affleck) is an American traveling in Europe who meets and falls in love with Marina (Olga Kurylenko), a Ukrainian divorcée who is raising her 10-year-old daughter Tatiana in Paris. The lovers travel to Mont St. Michel, the island abbey off the coast of Normandy, basking in the wonder of their newfound romance. Neil makes a commitment to Marina, inviting her to relocate to his native Oklahoma with Tatiana. He takes a job as an environmental inspector and Marina settles into her new life in America with passion and vigor. After a holding pattern, their relationship cools. Marina finds solace in the company of another exile, the Catholic priest Father Quintana (Javier Bardem), who is undergoing a crisis of faith. Work pressures and increasing doubt pull Neil further apart from Marina, who returns to France with Tatiana when her visa expires. Neil reconnects with Jane (Rachel McAdams), an old flame. They fall in love until Neil learns that Marina has fallen on hard times. ... Written by Magnolia Pictures

It's a wonder I wasted 2 hours of my life on this movie
12 April 2013 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

The movie is disjointed, bizarre, wooden, non-sensical. Apparently all you have to do to capture Ben Affleck's attention is run around weirdly, frolic in meadows, roll around the ground, drape your face in material. And then its love, sweet love!

Since you literally have no idea what's happening for the majority of the film, you are just "treated" to both female protagonists being odd and staring off into the distance. There are few words in this movie -- mostly from this really strange interaction between the french gal and her friend who is screaming in the neighborhood and from random crackheads talking to the priest.

This may be the worst movie I've ever seen... but it is absolutely the most boring movie I've ever seen.
