Storyline

Anna and Jacob fall instantly in love when they meet as students at an L.A. university. But Anna is British and when graduation approaches, Anna decides to stay and violate her student visa rather than returning to England. After a visit home, she is then unable to return to the United States. While fighting customs and immigration battles, Anna and Jacob must decide if their relationship is worth the distance and the hardship. Written by napierslogs

Quotes

Anna: I thought I understood it, that I could grasp it, but I didn't, not really. Only the smudgeness of it; the pink-slippered, all-containered, semi-precious eagerness of it. I didn't realize it would sometimes be more than whole, that the wholeness was a rather luxurious idea. Because it's the halves that halve you in half. I didn't know, don't know, about the in-between bits; the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me.

love is one of the most complicated and driving force of reality known to man, it is the foundation of connection. in this film however it didn't really try to connect with the audience, which was why the characters have little bearing for us to feel empathy or even care about. i mean it starts off as them immediately into each other and then we are somewhat forced into believing the connection they have through a bunch of amateurish camera-work, and pacing most of the time with no dialog, not that there's wrong with having no dialogs but this one failed to pull it off and besides of not a having a fruitful scrip integrated in the plot, there's not even a good chemistry between them.

the plot sounds interesting enough but everything else was just...meh..
