A Superficial Story About Superficial Love
23 July 2017 | by maja-furlanicSee all my reviews

The Girl from the Song is a movie about a story as old as time - a story about young love. Passionate to the extreme, yet superficial to the extreme. The main character Eric, a stereotypical quiet nice guy, falls in love with Jo, a stereotypical wild girl, and follows her all the way to Burning Man in the Nevada desert. What follows is a lot of silly, predictable drama and beautiful images of Burning Man. The movie is like a beautiful picture with no soul. All the main characters look like models who just walked off of a Mad Max-themed fashion show in Paris. Except for one character, who is supposed to play the role of the old, wise man who mentors Eric and helps him on his quest for love, but only comes off as incredibly creepy. I feel like I never got to know who Eric an Jo really are and what motivates them, which made me not care for what happens to them and what becomes of their love story. On a positive note, the two actors who portrayed Eric and Jo were actually pretty convincing, despite the silly script, and there was some good music.
