One by one Alvo asks his friends what they've done with their lives, whether they're truly happy, wouldn't they rather live like him? The hedonistic mood of the friends' soon turns sour when they realize Alvo isn't quite the man they thought he was.

beautiful scenery, great landscapes ...
11 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Very good actors, excellent scenery, beautiful sets, and that's the end of it ... that's where they earn 1 point (otherwise it should be 0). The story-line is irritating and predictable at every turn and twist. The same thing always happens: one of the four people with very, very low IQ says: they are after us! we must run! ... and they run. Or: we must leave this car and run, and they leave and run, and then they return to the car, ... why leave then ...? No reflection, no thought, no analysis, totally idiotic: mice in a maze trap, not real humans, plus constant quarrel about their lousy characters and past, and the producers want to take the viewers for this silly ride.

It's not a black comedy for me, its a extended spin about euphemistically speaking not-so-smart people. Formulaic plot, very easy to guess next turn. It is a cross of reality shows like "Survivor" + the one that nothing ever happens but people disappear on the deserted island and they produce tons of sequels ... = nothing to watch! good actors though, playing irritating characters ... miss it, please! Or switch your brain entirely and then watch.
