    This review contains spoilers. Incredibly slow and directionless. The characters aren't fleshed out and are unlikable, particularly the female protagonist.

    The movie begins with two lovers running in opposite directions on a bridge, which somehow initiates what seems like two parallel worlds with two sets of identical protagonists. I was interested in the beginning, and accepted the absurdity of some of the character's actions on the grounds that the film was centered around some surreal dream sequence. However, this development isn't expanded upon (with the exception that every notable event is mirrored in the opposing story line.) At any rate, a whole lot of nothing happens and is concluded with an extremely unsatisfying ending. Most of the movie was spent with each set of characters doing trivial things (such as buying olive oil) or running away from some non-descript men with guns as fast as the female lead could run (accompanied with much whining). Damn you netflix and your awful grading scale.

  1. In a way, the film ultimately gets snagged in its own contraption.

    Half formulaic and half simply unimaginative.

    The result is some nice atmospherics tethered to a cripplingly half-baked existentialism.
