Tilda Swinton is a rock star who is recovering from vocal surgery in a remote Italian island with her boyfriend. Then Ralph Fiennes, a rock producer and her ex boyfriend shows up with her young attractive daughter and their quiet relaxing getaway is changed. There is a slow build up and you know that something is going to crack, but what, or who?
There are a few flashbacks to help explain who these people are and their relationships, and of course, their relationships are very complicated of course.
Throughout the film I couldn’t take my eyes off of Fiennes. He was so interesting to watch. (Of course my eyes wandered any time any of the very attractive ladies were on the screen, but still.) He was a douche bag but also complicated and you never knew what he was going to do.
There was a time or two when I was a bit confused as to what little thing happened to completely change the direction of the movie, but that was okay.
I enjoyed this movie a lot. It was slow and deliberate. It could have sped up a little bit of the first act (which was most of the movie) but I anticipate thinking about this movie for a little bit. It was just over 2 hours. [Important to note that the wife hated this movie and thought it was the longest move ever made.]
TLDR: 3.5/5. This one is different but I found it satisfying. Definitely not for everyone but if it looks like something you might like, you might like it.
