The Loneliest Planet

A week or two ago I watched “The Loneliest Planet.”  Despite extremely limited dialogue, the story has stuck with me and I keep thinking back on it.  I don’t think it’s actually a story about loneliness so much as it is about separateness.  It’s a beautiful film, shot in the Georgian (the country, not the state) mountains.  If you’re in a quiet enough mood to get into it, I think you’ll enjoy it.  If you’re not, watch this.

Footnote: I just read this cutting review of the film and now wonder if I dislike it, or possibly myself, much more than when I started the post. I kid, I kid. I still like it and I like myself. However, I hear where he’s coming from. Fair warning, the review gives away the whole movie, if that’s even possible.
