Don't Waste Your Time
28 September 2019 | by larrys3See all my reviews

Two half-brothers David (Derek Dean) and Trinis (Matthew Smiley) arrive with their wives Stefanie (Nadine Vinzens) and Ciara (Alicia Gerrad) at the scenic town of Saas-Fee, in the Swiss Alps.

The interactions among the four will be the crux of the film. There isn't a lot of character development here, but they'll be lots of political and social agendas expressed. There's also an air of sexual tension throughout, and it can break into some very crude and explicit sexual encounters as well, some of which are infused by the use of hallucinogenic drugs.

Sorry to say, poor writing, unlikable characters, and a plot that seems to go nowhere all add up to a movie that isn't worth your time, as I see it. One positive, is that the cinematography of the Swiss Alps is spectacular.
