Goofs

Two Leica cameras are used. First the Leica M Monochrom (digital) camera with a Summarit 75mm lens, a short telephoto lens. But as it is a rangefinder camera you will not be able to see the magnification of the lens through the finder, on the opposite, the finder has a slight widening effect. When we see the blinking light in the valley through the finder of the camera, there is a focusing effect that does not exist with a Leica M camera and the image we see is zoomed in, which is impossible (except from the rear LCD screen). We also miss the focusing area, so specific for this camera. Just after the moment Alex/Kate W. sees the blinking, she hands over the camera to Ben/Idris E. But in this next shot the camera suddenly changed into a Leica M4-P (film) camera. You can also see this because of the different camera strap. After they made love, Alex/Kate W. starts to take photo's of Ben/Idris E. with the Leica M4-P camera, which is not so strange, because after almost 3 weeks the battery of the digital Leica M will be exhausted already for a long time. But no matter what Leica M lens she uses (in this case I think it is a Voigtländer 25mm), it is not possible to make a sharp focused picture from this close distance. The smallest focusing distance with these lenses is 0,7 meters (or non-rangefinder coupled 0.5 meters). And then there is of course the problem with the medium format negatives, as mentioned above.

Great acting great story
7 October 2017 | by loreal3See all my reviews

Two strangers meet under unusual circumstances. This movie is beautifully acted and filmed. I think the casting for this was perfect and makes the movie work really well. Some may complain about the pacing of the film, that is one of the things I enjoyed most about the film. It gives you a chance to settle into the movie and get to know the characters, without being bored. The characters are different and their differences are well played out and described, then you see a shift and this is what makes this a really really good movie and a remarkable love story.
