What one calls subtle, I call boring, this movie was banal and boring. I spent more time trying to count in the dark how many hot girls were in the theatre than watching the movie.

I haven't seen the film, but some of the complaints on here are ridiculous. not every movie needs plot, character development and dialouge. there are other subtle, deeper purposes for the movie to exist, and they don't need to I haven't seen the film, but some of the complaints on here are ridiculous. not every movie needs plot, character development and dialouge. there are other subtle, deeper purposes for the movie to exist, and they don't need to explained through plot, characters, and dialouge.

I could not bear it for more than 40 minutes and simply walked out. I don't expect all movies to have clear plot, dialogues or obvious point, but film has to entertain me or at least keep my interest to enjoy it.

Otherwise I may as well watch industrial camera or simply European street without any filmmaker being involved.

I know this shows that I'm geeky, literal-minded and impatient, but after watching it I went back and noted that the first bit of balloon footage ended at the 7-minute mark and then didn't reappear until the 57-minute mark.
