Just watched this movie in the Bergen International Film Festival. I didn't watch so many movies in this festival. I choose which ones I want to watch very carefully by title, and description of the movies. "10,000 KM" was the first one I chose that I was going to watch and I enjoyed every second of it from the beginning to the end.
I have actually always wanted to write a script or shoot a movie about the internet relationship IF I were a write or a director. It is difficult, and can be challenging. A lot of people have done that, but I haven't seen anyone has done it successfully. However, Carlos Marques-Marcet nailed it, just the way as I wanted it to be, or even better. I don't know how it feels for elder people who don't use internet or even anyone who doesn't have such experience before. But to me, it totally worked. The cast is simple, the conversation is raw but real, the cinematography is beautiful, while the theme of the movie is complex and deep.
There were actually only two characters, the leading actor and actress in this movie. The performance is outstanding, both of them. It couldn't support such a movie without excellent performances. In a good movie, the viewer usually could fit himself in one of the roles and feel for it. While in "10,000 KM", I could fit myself in both of them, more for Sergi(played by David Verdaguer) probably. I have gone through exactly the same thing as the couple did in the movie. Every act, every word, and every thought was so real. When they were questioning each other, they were also questioning themselves. Sometimes, you already knew it from your first thought, but then you try to find different ways to prove it wrong, but failed. What I like about this movie is that it didn't give the audience any suggestions, or any conclusion. You knew it from the first second of the scene, and just wanted to prove it throughout the whole movie. The director has done an excellent job by proving it to you.
As for me, I came thousands miles from China to Norway because of a long distance relationship. Now I'm ending up living here for almost ten years, alone. I gave the movie 10 out of 10, one point was from my own similar experience.
