Have I Fallen Asleep?
29 November 2012 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

What is there to say about this movie? Not a lot really. At best it is just a complete bore. It takes over an hour to get to the point and in doing so, we are taken on a muddled up journey of complete boredom with shallow characters, a script written on a piece of toilet roll. It stems around three loathsome unlikeable ex pats in Argentina who decide to steal a sum of money from the female ex pats Argentinian boyfriend. They talk about doing it, they go to the market, they talk about it, they go to a bridge, they talk about it, they go to the football ground, they talk about it, in fact that is all that happens for over one hour.

Then they carry out their "cunning plan" - which isn't cunning and isn't a plan - I won't spoil the movie for you (the director did that without my help) But to save yourself some time, watch the first ten minutes and then fast forward to the last 10 minutes and you won't have missed anything.
