Landing in the paradise of Thailand, cross cutting back to the main characters past life in New York, Erik ( Johan Matton) a young writer dependent on the love of his life Joanna (Linnea Larsdotter), argue and split up in the unfamiliar country of Thailand. We follow them on their separate journeys as Joanna meets up with her childhood friend David and Erik cross path with three backpackers Jamie, Cecile and Miranda. The journey takes unexpected consequences when temporary attraction, anxiety, loneliness and unfamiliar grounds forces Joanna and Erik to learn who they really are. Throughout their journey in Thailand we sporadically flashback into the beginning of Erik and Joanna's life in New York to learn who they are - each time we reveal a moment further back in time leading up to the first time they met.Written by
Many have said this movie is rather slow or boring, but I like to think that it's meditative and serene. Saying a movie is slow doesn't really define it well. A travel journey can feel confusing, slow, fast, heartbreaking and exhaustive. Erik & Joanna are young and in love, and whatever happens there will remain in their memories forever. And the feeling left at the end as to what'll occur is sad but wonderful. Whether slow, boring, shitty, beautiful, insightful or experimental, this indie film made me feel. Don't expect Hollywood drama nor sequences that will blow you away, just watch it and watch these people exist in their pensive points in time.
