Pretentious!
9 May 2012 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is my first NZ movie I have ever seen. I didn't enjoy seeing it and I don't understand the high rate so far. I consider it's very unrealistic and the love story is extremely bored, particularly when the love story starts. I didn't probably get the suitable mood to watch this movie because I consider it more a fantasy or an adult tale than a fiction movie. This is the reason that I consider it pretentious and unrealistic (e.g. how we can understand the secret place in East of Europe? how we can understand the love story based on glances (without chatting)? how is possible no police in the hospital?, etcetera). However, the main character is well played by Matt Whelan, the beginning of the movie is compelling and some picture of the different cities are beautiful.
