Storyline

1999. A few days before Thanksgiving. After a disastrous bank robbery attempt in Los Angeles fails, Bruce McGray hits rock bottom. He longs to leave everything behind and start a new life. Maybe even in the place in South America so vividly described in an unknown woman's diary: An abandoned orange grove on the coast of Columbia. When he finds several disturbing photos in the book, for some reason they seem familiar to him and he senses he must somehow be connected to this mysterious young woman. Bruce has no idea that this book will bring his entire past into question. As federal authorities and the New York police close in, Bruce sets out on a desperate search to discover his true identity.

It definitely feels like 12 years
31 December 2010 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

But 12 years of your own life passing by, while you seem to be unable to stop it (especially if you did not watch it on Disc, but on the big screen, where you do not have the remote control at hand, to fast forward the movie).

Yes the movie has quite nice themes and its psychological depths seem rich. The problem is: They only seem rich. Pretending and stretching the paper thin plot to such lengths is almost as if you are trying to punish your viewers. Is it our fault that the makers needed 12 years to finish this? Although the question to ask me or any other viewer could also be: Why stay and watch it then? Well I never give up on a movie halfway through. And though there is no physical pain involved in watching one movie, it definitely reached a level of annoyance that only a few movies have reached so far.

The movie tries to be clever, but in my eyes never achieves it. The hand-held style is not working either. It does add just another level of annoyance to the whole thing. But there is another side to the coin ... another review to be more apt ... read that too and make up your mind, if you really want to risk watching this.
