Makes a nose dive in the 2nd half
26 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The beginning is interesting, I would say until the second half. Nothing wildly exciting, has some nice little twist in there but very minimal. It is shot in a dreamy kind of atmosphere. For some completely non-constructive and no where plot related reason the class is in Jakarta (pronounced Yanky style Djakardda) and you can tell this by the teak hardwood furniture and the crickets in the back (duh). The second half is hopeless. All the close ups of clearasil clean faces, island shots, fuzzy broken sunlight and teak furniture (a lot if it) can't disguise the mouth-breathy throaty pouting delivered "philosophy" to be just pretentious romanticism. The ending is a joke. Or maybe it is 'so deep' we all didn't get it. I give it a 5 for the first half.
