I've been lurking on IMDb for years, always curious to see what the interwebs thinks of certain movies or films. And most of the times I can abide with the ratings. Not in this case however. Seeing that this movie is closer to the 6 than to a 4 I just had to register and rate this awful piece of pretentiousness.
When a movie gives you the feeling that your intelligence is failing you - several times I wondered if this is what it feels to watch Pokemon at the age of 75 - , something must have gone horribly wrong. Judging by the cast, the director, the writer, the shots, the locations and the props it's fairly safe to say that it wasn't a matter of budget.
The story itself has potential to be interesting, it is not super-original, but originality doesn't have to be the most important aspect of a good film. The way the story unfolds, or the characters develop can suck you in. But the pace of the movie (and I can enjoy slow movies very much so) is awful, the scenes are non-sensical and the dialogues are pompous. The highlight of the movie: Javier Bardem and the scene with the car had me laughing out loud, but Im pretty sure that wasn't the effect the makers had in mind.
Save your money and fight this piece of horrendous 'art'.
