A couple (Gael Garcia Bernal and Hani Furstenberg) goes backpacking with a guide, and you get to see them walk around a lot. A lot. This movie is just a series of shots consisting of characters walking, and doing very little talking; there are very few breaks in the monotony. When those breaks do occur, and the characters actually talk, some semi-interesting stuff does happen—but it’s not enough to justify watching this plodding film from director Julia Loktev. She seems to be attempting some sort of statement about how you don’t really know the person you are spending your time with until somebody points a gun at you. That’s all. If you want to learn a valuable life lesson while taking a nap in the theater, have at it.
