Enjoyed this a lot. Believable characters, believable scenarios, nice locations. Of course few of us are as physically attractive as the characters, and a film exploring what happens to those not quite so blessed would be interesting, But this is film/fairy tale territory, so I guess that’s unlikely to happen.
Bland characters in an incomplete or badly edited semi-romantic movie
I’m a sucker for any kind of romance movies, but lately it’s been hard to find good ones. This one isn’t it. Fair enough, the movie is more about two people pushing each other to do new things or get out of their comfort zone and in a way helping each other grow, instead of being a full on romantic teenage movie. I get the message the movie is trying to convey, but the medium is seriously flawed.
The plot seems rushed, one moment the protagonist meets a guy (we see about 3 seconds of them exchanging words) and literally 10 seconds later (counting from the initial meetup) the scene cuts to them kissing somewhere private? I don’t think the script was made up that way, because that would be some incredibly lazy and bad writing. My guess it was edited that way for time? They really should’ve made the movie at least 30 mins longer, as these kinds of noticeable editing choices and inconsistencies happen several times and makes the experience of watching the movie a bit jagged.
The protagonists seem bland, something that is trying to be compensated by the actors’ attractiveness. If you enjoy seeing two good looking people creating some sort of a bond on screen, I believe you’ll like this movie and get some sort of pleasure from it. The final revelations also seem to happen suddenly, there isn’t any real character development, dialogues seems a bit clunky and forced at times and the themes aren’t being explored properly. All in all, an okay movie for someone’s who’s feeling a little lovesick and has nothing better to do. 5/10.
