The Loneliest Planet--synopsis

Alex and Nica are young, in love and engaged to be married. The summer before their wedding, they are backpacking in the Caucasus Mountains in Georgia. The couple hire a local guide to lead them on a camping trek, and the three set off into a stunning wilderness, a landscape that is both overwhelmingly open and frighteningly closed. Walking for hours, they trade anecdotes, play games to pass the time of moving through space. And then, a momentary misstep, a gesture that takes only two or three seconds, a gesture that's over almost as soon as it begins. But once it is done, it can't be undone. Once it is done, it threatens to undo everything the couple believed about each other and about themselves. -- (C) IFC

Unrated, 1 hr. 53 min.

REVIEWS

Jordan Hoffman, Film.com:

If you are willing to subject yourself to an experience that is outside the norm of what a traditional movie is supposed to do, then you may come away with fertile soil for some fruitful discussion.



Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times:

Shot on location by cinematographer Inti Briones, "Planet" is a piece of art even without Bernal and Furstenberg, who are like moving portraits of themselves in this film.

    Movie was ... weird but had it's moments. The dinner afterwards was great. Fun to be in someone's home and actually be able to hear. Also lots more opportunity to mingle with everyone who showed up. It was a great idea!

    Many, many thanks to Susan for opening up her beautiful home and for all her hard work. And, George, thank you for your support and for providing some of the supplies for the party.
    I, actually, enjoyed the film. The cinematography was breathtaking. The relationship of the couple and the triangle developed organically. I appreciated the subtlety and the complexity of emotions. However, the slow pace will be a turnoff for most people.

    I woke up with a terrible cold this morning. I hoped I could rest and still make this event- I was looking forward to hanging out with all of you! I think it's wiser not to share my germs. Have fun!
    (someone is going to need to tell me what happened in this movie that created the game changer)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
