A continent of lost souls...
15 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Dead worth seeing. The camera and director got out and about - in the mountains of Greece and in the dodgy areas of Paris. Refreshing and raw in turns - I felt like I was sitting in a car with the windows down. I liked the variety and European scope of the locations. The music was peppy not derivative nor bouzouki or Dvorak. Characters were acted easily and convincingly apart from Ewen's which was unconvincing and all earnestness.Also no love interest and no hearts of gold.The characters outgrow the familiar plot. They are well-rounded and never reveal all.In the end we are not sure about any of the characters and what they have revealed. Like at the end of a documentary you are left figuring out just what you have seen.

Enjoy the ride as film takes you places you seldom get to see.
