Yeah, this film can divide opinion. On one hand it can be very long, slow and boring whilst on the other it can be seen as a very stylish and intelligent film. I'll settle for the middle ground. Yes, it can drag in places but the film does portay a failing relationship quite well. They have liitle to talk about to one another nor do they have similar interests and this is established in the first 30 mins. They are just incompatible thus break up. The female character takes a back seat untill the final 20 mins so we are left with a rather stagnent piece of the film which drags and can become uncomfortable for some. They finally come together in eastern Turkey whilst she is filming a show in the mountainous, snowy regions. Do they get back together? You'll just have to watch and find out! The artistic and cinematic aspects of the film should be applauded as they are beautiful with the natural environments being used with some spectacular results. Another bonus is the way in which the distance between the couple is apparent especially in the physical sense such as the scene on the beach. Beautifully shot in places but some may find this a long process.
