The Loneliest Planet Reviews
The photography, while not technically the best, is very rich on beauty whilst poor on number of subjects.
The extreme long shots that last eight minutes accompanied by meditative music attempt to take us to these mountains and see what the characters cannot.
The unflinching takes of monotonous conversation aim to bring you into the relationship of two people that feel utterly comfortable with each other.
At the same time, the long takes capturing a relentless silence will tell us much more about them than anything they can say. There is a lot in a relationship that remains in the dark, words that go unsaid and thoughts go unexpressed. Much of a relationship is built on what is not said. This film captures that quiet crumbling of a superficial relationship based on conjugating verbs and headstands. It asks but never answers the questions: what does it mean to be a man, a coward, independent, in love, alone? Well done.
