Spend some time in the country with someone you don't really like
11 November 2006 | by ShoekstraSee all my reviews

That's what I felt while watching this film: why am I spending some time of my life with a guy I don't find interesting at all?

So he doesn't like his life. So he expected more from it. So he fancies the cute woman he meets. So what? And why do they fall in love? What is so great about them? They're thirty-something, they have cool professions(film director, violin player), they're healthy, they aren't that witty, he certainly isn't much fun being around, she's...nice. I think the actors did a pretty good job, considering they didn't have much to work with in the first place. But once more I found that common flaw in love stories: you don't get a sense of why the couple falls in love, other than because the script says so.

Early in the movie the director is asked about the screenplay he's writing. He proceeds to make a pitch of a film so boring and unappealing to me I would have run in the opposite direction rather than go and watch it. That's when I knew I was in trouble.

I really liked the previous film of this director. It was fresh and compelling, and full of interesting characters with all too real problems and desires. I didn't expect such a big disappointment with this film. It's getting great reviews, which probably means I simply didn't get it. I was bored silly during most of it's running time. I thought it was bloodless and spineless. It's supposed to be about those things that are never shown in films....for some reason, I'd dare say. Or maybe it's just a matter of taste.

I did like the last scene. Very much. It was a beautiful scene, well written, well acted, two thumbs up about it. I only wish the rest of the film deserved that last scene...
