This movie blows.
if I weren't working while the movie played I wouldn't have finished it. luckily there was no dialogue or plot or anything interesting to watch...
That moment. Worth watching for, the before, and after, as well. ...but it was far too long. Otherwise i would highly recommend it.
If you like watching people walk through lush scenery while barely speaking you'll love this long long long movie. Part of me wants my two hours back. For the tiny bit of mysterious conflict and long reaction time this movie is an indulgence on the part of the film maker. Would this film have even been possible without the obsession on the part of the director with the Nica's red hair. It became tedious. I believe the concept was better off as a short story.
