Haunting, Thinker Movie (by jessicacarswell-09883)
Don't let the "bored" reviews fool you. This movie is a haunting portrayal of a post-human world and it will have your mind churning throughout the film and long after. What happens when you are the last two people on earth? How about stranded on a foreign island?Two thoughts --and no spoilers here-- for you to consider in watching this film: 1 what role does water play and 2 how comfortable are you being alone.The cinematography of this film is stunning. There are several moments when you can picture a moving still shot. Iceland doesn't disappoint and neither do the <more>
directors with their eye for beautiful messages through photography.I highly recommend watching with friends and planning a post-film conversation. I guarantee you'll learn a lot about your friends as you each interpret the actions of the two characters and the way we might each chose to live in a post-human world.
Minimal and meditative experience that allows for a lot of contemplation (by milosxlazic)
When I saw the title, I knew that after I watched it I would certainly have a much stronger desire to visit Iceland, and now even in hopefully the same scenario. The plot is so alluring, it's something I could've caught myself thinking about in the past a lot. And of course, I would love the outcome of my struggle to be different, but at the same time, who am I to judge these two people for their choices.Similar to the movie "Rester vertical" 2016 , this one, as expected, abounds in picturesque photography that only makes so much more enjoyable the in the same way reduced a <more>
plot. So, what we have is beautiful photographic reduction and also reduction on the level of a plot, which doesn't provide too many fluctuations during the film, but rather allows for a lot of meditative contemplation: what would I do if I was put in the same situation, the most basic question I would ask myself. There's slight mood shifts and perhaps one change of course that introduces the mysterious and magical to the plot and also to the symbolism of photography, as if the film already didn't abound in these.I can imagine many might have been stressed out by the ending of the movie because of their failure to identify with the characters' deeds, but I'm very happy that in the end, story wise it is not terminal. Throughout the credits, you can see one characters contemplating face, further wondering about the possibilities he has left on his hands to continue pursuing his creative goals. The only question is where will one find motivation for anything one does, actually whether motivation comes from within or from outside of us and so on. It's only very imaginative and enriching experience the film."They say that Gods' one and only voice is silence. He just must have more to say these days."
Not foe everyone but I can't fault it (by ektopia)
The pace is slow, the soundtrack is fantastic and fitting and the photography is lush. Story-wise, for me, it's the most thought provoking of empty earth stories. It's missing so much that these kind of films have and I can certainly do without them all. Gentle, thought provoking and beautiful.
Provocative ... let it seep into you and then ponder it (by randy-62162)
Bokeh is not a sci-fi movie! If you are looking for wild special effects, alien interference in human affairs, and the like, watch another movie. Bokeh is about relationships: relationship to self how one develops meaning in oneself ; relationship to a significant other; relationship to the social world.Who has not awakened on a trip in a strange bedroom and been deeply disoriented for a period of time? Where am I? Am I alone here? Am I oddly disconnected from everything familiar? What do I do? What if that period time was not short, but all of the future?My wife and I viewed this, and <more>
paused several times to ask ourselves a central question: what we would do in a similar situation?We also have been pondering some of the central questions raised in the film: -- What would we do in a world full of material goods but bereft of human contact? -- How connected/limited to the past are each of us in our relationships? -- If there are more than just us, how many more is necessary, sufficient? -- Can beauty and possibility outweigh loneliness and fear? -- Is this a story about an "Eden" or a "Hell?" -- Do we despair at the loss of what has been or imagine what is possible in the new norm? -- How would our lives change if many of our social constructs were suddenly gone? -- Would you need to know the reason for the change in order to live beyond it, or is it possible to be existential without despair? -- Why didn't they visit IKEA? grin Technically the film is well-made: few if any continuity errors, which would have severely diminished the impact of the movie. The sense of isolation AND the sense of the immense beauty of a place that seems closer to the origins of the earth are beautifully portrayed. The twin elements of the oppressive aloneness AND the amazing abundance fuel tanks with enough for the foreseeable future, stores with everything two would need, fresh water, geo-thermal warmth, etc. are evident, palpable. We wonder where the sheep and puffins have all gone . however we do get ponies and a singular cat. The characters are complex, not just facades: she mourning the death/loss of flowers in the Floral Shop but then romping through the meadow filled with living flowers; he looking beyond the rituals of the past but wanting to complete the burial of the dead. Even Nils in his brief role – why is he dying of thirst next to a pristine freshwater lake? We will be back to this movie again and probably again and again . we are thinking of having a house party for some like-minded friends to watch it together followed by some discussion and libations. Hoping it will make it to our little island town on the bigger screen. disclaimer: the scenes of Iceland Island are amazing. I am a lover of Iceland who has traveled there often, so it was a coming-home kind of movie in a way. My wife has been there once, found it a great place for a single visit, and is not as enamored with it. Still, she found the story line and its presentation to be engaging and provocative.
It's funny because the reason why I decided to watch Bokeh were the contradicting reviews and low rating. I did not regret it, I really loved this title.Yes, it is slow paced. I understand why it is not appealing for many. But there are several slow paced titles out there, and I love a lot of them. I love that you can actually start reflecting in yourselves on what just happened in the movie.And I would not say that the movie is not making a point. I don't consider it spoiler what I'm about to say, but perhaps you want to first watch the movie and come back to this review after <more>
having watched it. Obviously this is a completely personal interpretation, and has a lot do with who I am and what do I stand for, but I could relate the movie to my personal situation and to the situation of some people around me: sometimes it feels like you are completely alone, but it does not mean you need to give up hope. Keep working, keep doing your thing, and keep looking for people like you. It is never obvious where to look and what to do, but this is real life. This is how you know you are actually living a life and not just being pushed around by "civilization". And remember that sometimes the most you can do for yourself and for others is to simply live your life. That's the biggest teaching for others.Don't turn away from this movie. Maybe this is exactly what you were looking for... And if not, then I'm sorry, I did not mean to trick you doing anything you did not want to. :-
Many of the earlier reviews here are missing the point of this movie. There's no tidy resolution for what happens to the characters. This is not a tediously predictable Hollywood film.Bokeh centers on a young couple on holiday in Iceland, who wake up to find themselves alone. All other people have disappeared, both in Iceland and seemingly at home, and they now have to cope with total isolation. As time goes on, this becomes both easier and harder.The locations in Iceland are fantastic and help to reinforce the strange and difficult situation they find themselves in.This movie makes you <more>
think a lot, and that's really the point. Other reviewers seem to feel cheated out of an explanation, but why do you think you're entitled to one? Bokeh puts you in the same position as its characters and forces you to confront the mind-bending difficulty that they find themselves in. That makes it different to the usual fare, and ultimately more satisfying.PS: The term "Bokeh" refers to a photographic depth of focus effect. It has nothing much to do with the story but don't let that put you off.
One of the most interesting movies I have seen, but be aware. (by help-71614)
Be aware because by just ready synopsis, you might believe this movie is a typical American post-apo movie with a love story on top of that, and going into that movie thinking is a "no brain" movie is the worst thing you can do. And that Is why this movie get so much bad notes.This movie is about what could be the actual reaction of two people if everyone suddenly disappeared. And it's more about what would you think than what would you do.So that movie is definitely a "with brain" movie. Even though the answer is to be find by yourself.And the strength of that movie <more>
is its capacity to aspire you in that lonely world so you could really feel like your the last one on earth at a certain point.Of course the movie have some bad approach like I think the beginning is maybe too "comercial", too "much love", but we also have to finance the thing you know.I would recommend it to anyone who like weird movie as I am. movie like from the Sundance, like "Comet", "another earth", etc...
If you can't appreciate what you have and never value everything you had, then you have nothing. What was the point of nothingness, nothing about nothing? If you can't see the ray of sunshine in front of your face, then you have nothing. I suppose my review is saying nothing but hey we all have an opinion, Right?
Visually stunning, existential movie with a somewhat lazy ending. sponsored by Iceland Tourism Board (by akulier-13288)
This is a beautiful movie, visually stunning and deeply moving, with a very intriguing premise. It poses some very existential questions, in fact, it could have been written by Sartre or Camus themselves. How do you act when nothing seems to make sense anymore? How do you decide to live your life when you have no tangible incentive, no foreseeable future? Do you hold on to it, trying to survive, making the best of it, or do you keep being trapped in the past, questioning everything and ultimately giving up? This is "The Plague" all over again. I agree with many reviewers that for a <more>
feature film, it is somewhat disappointing, lacking a bit of depth and giving in to the temptation of having the wonderful scenery do all the work. This is definitely not a sci-fi movie, and it is definitely not about how to survive although I spent half a night wondering what I would do to ensure my, and the human race's, survival . It is about how to deal with a situation that makes no sense at all, on a life threatening basis. It is also about how a fragile relationship is changing under this pressure, not even holding up when working together is the one and only option to survive. I agree that the ending is a little disappointing, leaving more questions than answers e.g. what about that tap water scene in their home?? , it strikes me simply as a bit lazy. Nonetheless, a very watchable movie, it stays with you for a long time, which is usually a sign of good quality.Here is the M. Night Shyamalan version: nobody has actually disappeared, but the young couple was found comatose in their beds after e.g. a CO intoxication, suicide attempt or drug OD , and the whole movie plays in the ICU while they fight or not for their lives in an imaginary world fashioned by their last visual impressions while alive. This would explain why the old man, amidst a plethora of freshwater, is so thirsty. He is just '"passing through" this twilight world between life and death, having been terminally ill to begin with, and putting up a fight for his life for one night only. The girl is eventually giving in, and moving on to the world of death, while the boy refuses to let go and keeps on fighting. In the end, we don't know whether he will survive or not. In case he does, he would awake in a Reykjavik ICU.I'm just saying. :-
