Movie Info

Co-directed, co-written, and co-starring Alex Holdridge and Linnea Saasen, the romantic comedy Meet Me In Montenegro tells the tale of Anderson (Holdridge) an indie filmmaker who must travel to Berlin to take a meeting with an actor who may want to play the lead in a new big-budget sci-fi film he has written. In Berlin he meets up with his old friends Stephen (Rupert Friend) and Friederike (Jennifer Ulrich), a couple who are considering engaging in a group sex encounter. Anderson also makes contact with Lina (Saasen), a dance who broke his heart years earlier when, during a seemingly idyllic trip to Montenegro, she disappeared leaving behind just a note. The movie follows the fortunes of these two couples. Meet Me In Montenegro screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. (C) The Orchard

Critic Reviews for Meet Me In Montenegro

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

This story has echoes of a Richard Linklater story, but peters out early on and an interminable voice-over grinds every other dramatic moment into dust.

July 9, 2015 | Full Review…

It's a wonder the two lead characters in "Meet Me in Montenegro" manage to take in any of the vibrant sights, what with all the navel-gazing that permeates this mopey romantic comedy.

July 9, 2015 | Full Review…

There are no surprises, but for once there's a set of artsy millennial characters who feel like real humans, and Berlin looks great.

July 8, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The quiet honesty of Anderson and Lina's interactions and raw, often handheld camerawork wash away the film's meandering pace and sometimes grating dialogue.

It's a story we've seen before, in countless cinematic iterations, but there's no denying that Holdridge and Saasen's hearts are in the right place.

August 13, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Holdridge and Saasen should get credit for making sure the obstacles to their happiness aren't romance-movie contrivances, but rather the sorts of things that happen to people while they're busy making other plans.
