More melancholy than you can possibly bear
24 January 2001 | by SchmoffiSee all my reviews

This movie looks like a pure exercise in style. Someone must have thought that the more close-ups of ashtrays or coffee cups you can add to your movie (from weird angles and/or out of focus), the more intellectual appeal it gets.

This film is about two people who meet in an Internet chat room, are more or less destined for each other, but, to quote Roger Ebert, try to avoid happiness as long as possible; will they finally meet? (Right; you guessed it.)

I liked the basic outline of the plot, but there were just to many scenes of people sitting with their heads propped up on their hands, staring into their overflowing ashtrays, drinking heavily, and looking sooo depressed.

I'm not trying to poke fun at someone who's lonely or rejected, but the makers of this movie spent way to much effort at expressing their intentions in wonderful pictures; many of the shots are really beautiful, but there are just to many of them, and after a while you (I, that is) want to yell "alright, I know what you want to express, now let's move on with the plot".

As I said, the movie looks great, I liked the actors, and if you're in the right mood and don't mind a bit of exaggeration you'll possibly like it.
