Boring and confusing
17 May 2011 | by rightwingisevilSee all my reviews

A movie mixed with the past and the present, the regret, the loss, the father and the prodigal daughter, the constant flashbacks and the confusing mix ups. How could it be possible that this father's cell phone could still get connection no matter where he traveled in the remote and deserted wildness of Africa? Give me a break. His intervene of the hyena and the seal on the beach was what? A symbol of his meddling of his daughter's love affair. This guy was a loser, a confusing low moral guy who actually just used the excuse of finding his estranged daughter in order to get over the shames and the losses of his own life, his obsession of his talented daughter, somewhat an overwhelmed incest father-daughter complex. This is a very boring movie that I didn't find any depth in anything.
