What a Man: The young teacher Alex is abandoned by his girlfriend Caroline and therefore begins a journey in search of himself. But how he overcomes the pitfalls out there for a modern man? And what is it that makes a man a man?
It's actually quite hard to make a good romantic movie. Not only the story must evoke strong positive feelings from completely different people, but the actors need to display a chemistry that goes beyond words, beyond image. This movie fails to do that on almost every front, although it has a decent premise and actors. Besides that, the entire plot of the film was spoiled in the description of the film on the movie platform I was using, so there was nothing else left than the details. And they kind of sucked. Not only that, they started promising something and then completely forgot about it, like the connection between the two best friends of the main actors, for example.
Bottom line: a standard romantic plot acted and directed at a mere mediocre level and plagued by a lack of chemistry between the protagonists. A decent attempt, but sadly not enough.
