Wish I'd read the reviews and saved myself the disappointment.

Hardly any dialog and almost no communication between the "characters". Very bizarre.

It's like an excruciatingly long Calvin Klein commercial; you get to look at pretty people and scenery but that's about it. Literally.

If you like that kind of thing you might like it. Very "moody" and dramatic and boring!

Using "artsy" as a derogatory term doesn't really make sense. Leave it to the narrow-minded ORL "reviewers" to completely misinterpret on of Terrence's finest films

Really awful. Like a compilation of the worst of the worst of French cinema.

I should have seen the negative reviews earlier; that would have saved me the 15 minutes I wasted before turning off this movie.

This movie was so terrible, it made no real sense and was all about being artistic, but failed huge on story telling. Olga was stunning, and only reason I fought not fast forwarding the movie. I felt at times it was my kids playing SIM's game, because in those games the charachters also mumble and you don't actually understand what they say like many scenes in this movie! There was one part that made me laugh, (the scene wasn't meant to), but showed just how stupid it was. Olga charachter was talking to her best friend, and it has the subtitles below for us to read along. The friend is talking to her in Italian, and Olga is speaking in French back to her, and they carry a conversation, all with subtitles?!! What is that all about? LOL!

I enjoyed it for its artistic and intellectual content (excellent filmography, etc), but it didn't really touch me emotionally.

Very similar to the Tree of Life movie if you like that type of genre.
However I found it a bit long, disjointed and vague in some areas. The movie should have had more substance and held back on the ''arty'' cinematography for flash backs

Terrence Malick's movies aren't the usual--which is what I like about them. He doesn't spoon feed a story to the viewer. I loved his last movie, The Tree of Life. It felt, on the whole, more cohesive than this one. What you need to understand here is that the characters are reflecting upon a period of time from their various perspectives. Memory is very selective. We don't have flashbacks the way most movies portray them. We remember tiny fragments, the importance of which can be mysterious even to ourselves. As with all Malik's films, this one is visually beautiful, and, with a bit of effort/participation, we're left with insights not only into the characters, but ourselves.
