Tedious Beauty
14 March 2019 | by ivans536See all my reviews

Very predictable art movie. Since it lacks a real script, it settles instead for artsy ramblings on life and love. The director doesn't do the actors any favors, as this clunker hinges on the performances of the two leads, who, although coming off great, don't manage to have us emotionally involved. Clocking in at only 75 minutes, it still manages to be tedious and overlong, and comes off as a great student short film that was unfortunately stretched out to a feature length.

Anton Yelchin does a lot with the material he is given, and his heartbreak is almost palpable, although the viewer has no idea where it's coming from. The female lead is also good, playing off of Yelchin rather well. The only other redeeming quality are the vignettes of Porto that populate the film, and show the city in the most beautiful light possible (spoken as someone who lived there).

Liked: the photography Yelchin's performance Porto

Disliked: The script The story The pacing The editing The music (although beautiful it was far too intrusive)
