Gael García Bernal,
This is one of the worst film I've ever seen. I didn't leave during it, only because I kept thinking, "It's got to get better," but it never did.
The resolution of the HD camera filming was excellent, and some of the filming technique was interesting, yet way overdone. For example numerous very, very distant shots of people simply walking and walking and walking and walking. It radiated a silly air of contrivance with a hope and prayer to sell that and a lousy plot off as an "Art Film," which might somehow win it acclaim. Didn't work with a damn!
As with other forms of art, there is a great debate as to what is "real art" and what is not. The Arts Community loves to say that everything a creator makes and calls art, is in fact "real art," along with a supposition that being "real art" is ergo "good art and worthwhile art." NOT TRUE!
The plot in this movie is so well hidden that after the storyline's main incident finally happens, most viewers can't even realized that "it" was the "main incident." The movie repeatedly radiates "amateur" with respect to the plot and directing of the film. That said, the three actors give fairly good performances, but I'm sure they have been very embarrassed by the final cut, which simply stinks.
