another version of "conversation with other woman (2005)
29 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

but this time the setting is outdoor, on the brink of the soon-to-be-dried-up "dead sea". what we got here is a screenplay trying so hard to be philosophically deep yet at the same time totally clueless and pointless. the guy is what? looking for this mysterious woman, a missing person, for three years. when he first showed up, i bet 99.9% viewers would think that he was chased by a posse, a guy running away or escaping from a prison. the he ran up the mountain pass, found the woman who was loitering along the road. he claimed that he's been looking for her for three years and asking her to come back with him to some mysterious location to SAVE THE WORLD! yeah, right. then their conversation became so ambiguous and vague, like a see-saw or elastic band or even a bouncing ball, flying so high and so deep concerning human relationship, things evolved around during the three years time span, responsibility, world future, blah, blah and blah. the guy carried a long neck glass bottle of water and drank it during the conversation, and she licked and moisturized her lips and exclaimed: "you carried water? you drink water?". obviously she was also a bit thirsty, but the script did not arrange the man to offer her a sip of water. the world was definitely going to an end, it might be the Israelis and the Iranians would throw nuclear bombs to each other and the part of the middle east might be totally destroyed or whatever your imagination could carry you. but to me, this film is absolutely a going-nowhere one, also inevitably a box office nightmare. you guys could do whatever you like to prove that you are very deep and thoughtful, and you truly understand what these two only actors really tried to deliver, philosophical or metaphorical, deep or shallow, i just couldn't care less.
