The Turning Reviews
An Australian art film, lasting two and half tedious hours. It's composed of nine smaller segment films none of which relate to one another. Each of which explores various 'turning points' in the depicted characters' lives. But as soon as you engage with the plot, off it goes to yet another unrelated storyline. Its like watching a series of movie trailers. Not enjoyable.
Yes, Down Under, drive on the other side of the road, whatever, but the humanity, the day to day, the life, the living, very much similar ... and too the longing for someplace foreign, or exotic, or someplace simply different: very much similar.
Jonathan Auf Der's 3 hours slice-o-life gives that perspective, insight, and warmly so, but you'll need to be prepared for that 3 hour sitdown, that's for sure.
