Critic Reviews for The Art Of Travel
Overacted and overblown, pic will underwhelm commercially, with theatrical perhaps limited to friends and family.
...director Thomas Whelan embraces the wanderlust spirit in this enjoyable if uneven film, whose qualities often reflect the television background of most of its cast.
The use of such locales as Bolivia, Nicaragua, Panama and Peru adds to the exotic flavor of the film.
Part The Graduate, part Fitzcarraldo, The Art of Travel is a tribute to living on the road less traveled. Filmed entirely on location, it offers a more rounded portrayal of culture outside of the standard Hollywood clichés
It's a sturdy directorial job for a difficult movie; one that wants to spread the idea of travel as the ultimate cotton swab of life, but also engages in good times to keep the less spiritually open audience members awake.
Travel is an ambitious, involving and extensive travelogue that challenges the imagination. [A] feasible fable that allows one to remain contemplative and connected
Audience Reviews for The Art Of Travel
Hmm.....I put it on as something to fall asleep to, and it was so bad I couldn't sleep through it. For a movie that claims to hate quotes, it sure uses lots of lame ones to tell the story.
Stunning scenery, interesting characters, decent acting, but a lackluster plot add up to make this a bit of a disappointment. I didn't necessarily need a Hollywood, feel good ending, but it needed some spark to make it memorable and all we got was a little "pfft". There was so much I could not buy about the story. There were a lot of unanswered whys. Why were they hacking their way across the jungle? Why did the couple entice Conner to join them? Why did it take Conner so long to hook up with the girl and why did he leave her? Why? I think this was just a vehicle, an excuse to film in some incredible locations. And the promise is that there will be more to come. Oh, joy. Watch it for the scenery, but don't expect much from the story.
This is an adventure tale of a young man finding a new begining. It is a positive movie with a message of living and enjoying life. While there are some minor faults it is hard not to overlook them.
