Please, if I can save you the nearly 2 hours this film takes to make its point, your time won't be wasted like mine. This is a movie based on a short story by Tom Bissell; the movie might have been interesting itself as a short.

This is a movie based on a short story by Tom Bissell; the movie might have been interesting itself as a short. However it drags on for nearly 2 hours, during which time there are literally only a couple of minutes of important scenes. The rest of the time is devoted to trying to set the mood of the relationship between the characters (which could have been done in minutes, not hours)...which unfortunately fails to be interesting or believable.

One of the only saving graces of this movie is the incredible Georgian mountain scenery, and even that is reprised many times in virtually identical shots which themselves drag on so long as to be puzzling.

The movie is boring, then unrealistic, then all out stupid mixed with repugnant. I cant believe the favorable reviews this garbage got. I had to make an account just to post this.

I had to make an account just to post this. Essentially the couple is not relatable or realistic. Its sort of sexist against men. Most people take it for granted how men are expected to instinctually react, but thats really female chauvinism. Expand

It starts out alright plotwise. We see the main two characters interacting with each other and the locals, and while nothing gripping happens, we get the point. One climactic event in the whole story was mildly interesting and a little funny, but nothing interesting happens as a result of it. The resolution takes forever to get to and is fairly ridiculous, yet predictable. The movie gives the viewer no reason to care about any of the characters. I gave it any points at all because the scenery is beautiful. The Georgian landscape fills the screen and we're treated to some amazing, stunning shots. If the entire movie was just shots of the landscape it would've been great, but the two main characters managed to be at once obnoxious and pathetic. They made a visually stunning homage to Georgian geography into a boring and drawn out story about a couple of petty tourists. Expand
