1 hour, 8 minutes, 2 people, a rural/bucolic scenery and a conversation about gods, mortals and death
23 May 2007 | by tdias-1See all my reviews

This is one of the worst movies I've seen. It's unavoidable staring a comment on this movie like this. 1 hour, 8 minutes, 2 people, a rural/bucolic scenery and a conversation about gods, mortals and death. Change the scenery and the 2 people from time to time but keep the utterly boring conversation and you've got 'Quei loro incontri'.

The readers in the movie (yes, I don't consider them actors here) read out loud those fantastically boring lines of text with awful intonations, one exception was the male in the scene prior to the last which had quite a good intonation actually. His script was read almost conversationally, an extreme contrast to the other readers...

The only viewable scenes are a few camera movements about the lusciously bucolic sceneries and the fantastic, superb, ending music... Oh, how I loved those moments of blackness without the tedious conversations and with some bearable music :)
