With its deliberately washed-out color palette, affectless dialogue and nearly event-free story line, Steve + Sky is a mere slip of a movie, a wan character study of people who add up to little more than a series of studied quirks.
Felix Van Groeningen's low-budget romance is also sly -- if utterly superficial -- fun.
Hugely tedious and mostly incomprehensible, Quentin Tarantino-wannabe Dutch director Felix van Groeningen's Steve + Sky is the kind of foreign movie that gives subtitles a bad name.
The sense of midnight-movie déja vu carries into the herky-jerk, non-linear screenplay and the fluorescent, life-is-a-sex-club-at-two-a.m. art design.
As aimless as its protagonists, Steve + Sky proves equally inept at irreverence and profundity.
Though undeniably gorgeous, there's considerably less to Van Groeningen's film than meets the eye.
