Alex and Nica are young, in love and engaged to be married. The summer before their wedding, while backpacking in the Caucasus Mountains in Georgia, they hire a local guide to lead them on a camping trek. Venturing into the stunning wilderness, the trio's peaceful adventure takes a dark turn as a subtle rift opens between Alex and Nica, quickly widening until it threatens to undo everything the couple believed about each other and themselves.

Strange movie. Not everybody's cup of tea.
It's a plot spinning around a single scene.
Too slow at times. Wonderful Georgian landscapes though.

Gael Garcia turns in a decent performance but it does not save this sophomoric attempt. There is a film-worthy idea somewhere in there and in the hands of a superior director and scriptwriter the results might have been different.

Absolutely terrible movie, REALLY bad & BORING. Don't bother watching this one, totally awful movie & waste of time!

You know by the comments that you'll either love this film or hate it. That's usually the hallmark of a good film. I really liked it. Not the best film I've ever seen but I'd definitely watch it again.
And the price was right.

You'll never get this 90 minutes of you life back. To be avoided.

Since most of the comments pan this, I'd like to come to its defense a bit. I didn't LOVE it, but I did think it had some cool stuff going for it. For one, what others are calling boring, I found beautiful and meditative. I loved all the long hiking shots in the amazing expanse of mountains and fields. It was quiet, contemplative, and made me wish I was out hiking in the wilderness (but I'm not brave enough, so I get to enjoy it from the comfort of my couch.) I enjoyed the subtle, realistic communications and relationship textures. No, there really wasn't much plot, but it was a sort of honest, human snapshot of travel in foreign lands with some interesting landscapes and subtle, introspective takes on our strengths and our frailties. I think it'll stick with me (in that subtle way) and I'll be glad I watched it. But no, it's not the best movie ever made. But it's interesting. And, yes, she had stunning red hair and both leads had deep beautiful eyes that communicated complex emotional depth beyond their few words.

I can't agree with the handful of glowing reviews on this tortured, slow-moving film. Never had any feeling for the main characters besides mild annoyance. The long distant shots don't help engender any sort of closeness with, or between, the characters, and I didn't find the scenery as stunning as some reviewers describe. There was a nice, albeit too-long, shot of the girl's red hair blowing around at one point, and that was about as interesting as things got for me.

A lot of hiking, not much more to it. From the preview I watched I was expecting something eventful to happen, not much did.
