Storyline

On a whim, Eve, a Swedish traveler, accepts an invitation from Peter to vacation on his family's private island off the coast of New England. As a series of unexpected delays prevent other guests from arriving, Eve discovers that she has little in common with the increasingly erratic Peter. Gradually the idyllic natural beauty of the island gives way and Eve finds herself trapped in a state of surreality punctuated by bizarre visions, dimensional shifting and secret soda.

Awful Awful Awful
15 October 2017 | by LumpyPicklesSee all my reviews

I had the misfortune of watching this "film" at the 2017 New Hampshire Film Festival. It was without question the worst attempt at film making I have ever had the misfortune of sitting through. An accurate description for this movie is a pile of hot garbage baking in the sun and quite honestly I would rather have watched a pile of hot garbage for an hour and a half. The brief description of the movie is the entire plot. Literally there is no more plot to the movie than given in the description. Swedish girl goes to island with guy and things get weird and that's it. There is no more development of the story than that. I honestly can't even see how there was a script written for this movie as scene after scene just happen seemingly with no rhyme or reason and with almost no connection those before and after it. There was a reason at the festival that no one stayed around for the Q and A after the movie and person after person jokingly asked for that hour and a half of their life back. Literally pick any other movie on planet earth and watch that instead of this.
