Juliet, Naked is the story of Annie (the long-suffering girlfriend of Duncan) and her unlikely transatlantic romance with once revered, now faded, singer-songwriter, Tucker Crowe, who also happens to be the subject of Duncan's musical obsession.
Classical music meets terrorism, an interesting mix.
Some of the scenes in this movie are just a shade bizarrre, at times the tension is
quite good, particularly in the first half of the movie, but then the tension gets broken by these odd scenes.
I think the movie tries to touch on some of the terrorists vulnerabilities and how such people end up with semi-automatic weapons in their hands. But it doesn't quite get there, I wish it had stuck to one genre and thrown all its energies into that area.
At the end of the day, I preferred the tension and drama to the love scenes which I didn't find plausible.
Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the movie, I just feel that it never falls into the greatness category.
My favourite quote from the movie
"Are you sure they won't shoot, not everyone likes opera"
