In all I have never experienced a more fulfilling 1. There are some indulgences that are unnecessary and distracting long close ups of sex that adds nothing and subtracts somewhat, although it fits the theme: loss of lovely things. Why make a movie about an avoidable end of the world if not to move people? The film is slow, poor audio quality, and its biggest sin of all is it's boring. Fans of both doomsday scenario movies and movies that show close-ups of Willem Dafoe's pubic region should walk away eerily pleased from this one. The passion for what is about to be no more. I guess I better go see that new movie today since the world is going to end tomorrow.
Trust me and save yourself an hour and a half. But that is subject for another discussion. A left wing shout out to sensitive souls who might just have seen it all coming.

The story is about how two particular people would spend their last hours on earth if they new the world was coming to and end at a specific time. If it's your last day on earth due to health or environmental reasons, you might want to consider in putting an end to your misery before watching this unbearable picture! But overall it is a thoughtful and timely thesis that is an understated, overwhelming passion play. There were some scenes setup for promising dialog and emotion, like when he was saying goodbye to his daughter, yet turned out plastic and annoying. I just hope he realizes that he should never go near this pond again.

My problems with this film are that the science is not explained and the story contains no concrete lessons. I found the movie boring and besides a couple of decent scenes that were well acted or at least approached what one would expect toward the end, overall it was poorly written and haphazardly put together. In short, it isn't for the lazy mind which doesn't want to think. The stories references to religion uses montages and didn't advance or enhance the story.
Traffic is flowing just fine and walking the streets looks like an average night. Before ordering this movie I was reading things here such as: Great Job!
