Lost in the desert...

If you dare to watch this film be sure not to expect much of a story, rather enjoy the surprising beauty of the Argentinian Pampa and the time the film gives you to look. I guess almost every shot lasts longer than 10 seconds and many run far longer and create a dreamlike atmosphere. At some point it reminded me of a still picture gallery. Not much talking is done either and the dialog is creating more fog then clearance. There is only a very thin storyline but most things remain incomprehensible. Films like „Gerry" come to mind, or „The Shooting", "The Draughtsman's Contract" or even „Shutter Island". The best approach might be to absorb the images which are often really stunning and don't try to solve the riddle. It seems to be meant as an experience, not as a thesis on what went wrong in this or that person's life. The main character gets deeper and deeper into the desert while everything gets more surreal. Although all this sounds rather weird and boring, the film has an inner suspense that doesn't let go. Viggo Mortensen plays a man who looses his dignity in the course of the events but he never appears ridiculous which is much to the credit of the actor.

Art movie for thinkers

SPOILER ALERT: contains the key to understanding this movie; if you're still baffled by it read on! To paraphrase the synopsis: A father and daughter journey from Denmark to an unknown desert that exists in a realm beyond the confines of civilization, and reality, and maybe it was all a dream... The first clue sneaks up on you when the father, who's looking for his daughter in the Patagonian desert, meets a dog that seems to intently lead him to a cave where an old Danish woman lives against all odds and logic; their conversation hints that the woman is his lost daughter (now aged); he seems to feel awkward and leaves to continue his journey anyway. The ending just spells it all out - a young Danish girl wakes up in an empty Danish mansion. As she goes about taking care of her only real companion, the same dog we saw in the first part, it becomes clear that she dreamed the first part of the movie, while weaving elements of her life into that story: her dog, toy-soldier, estranged mother (the unseen murderous cross-dressing deserter?), semi-absent but caring father, and new-found sexuality. The more you look, the more you find... and the vistas are stunning

I'd Rather Watch Paint Dry

I'm all for complex dramas even if they're extremely slow paced. However, when it comes to nearly indecipherable plot elements and extremely slow pacing, I'd rather watch paint dry. This is one of those movies that maybe a select few cinephiles and critics will tell us is poetry in motion. I guess if you're one of the unsophisticated like myself, you very well may not have the slightest clue what is taking place on screen. I know I didn't. The fine actor Viggo Mortensen's talents are nearly completely wasted here in this totally confusing mess of a movie. I'm glad some have found it to their liking, but to me it was totally incoherent, as I kept waiting for some of it to make sense. Good luck with that!
