Beautiful but does not speak to viewers
10 March 2016 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of three children who goes to the same class in school in a suburban part of Palo Alto, where lions roam and threaten the safety of people.

"Yosemite" has good camera with, good lighting and good visual presentation of scenes. The technical aspects are great, but there's no content. All we see in the first segment is three people walking around in a beautiful national park. The second segment shows an unlikely friendship between a boy and an adult male, but that's pretty uneventful to the point of boredom. The third story is slightly more happening, but it is still rather dull and boring. Maybe the film is of personal significance to the director and producers, and this personal meaning doesn't translate across to the viewers.
