The Loneliest Planet


2012 | 113 minutes | Rated NR

In The Loneliest Planet, a couple (Gael García Bernal and Hani Furstenberg) from a first-world country travels to a second-world country to experience nature. They hire a guide for a hike across the mountains. He is not guiding the couple through wild and scenic nature but, instead, to the spiritual twilight zone of their relationship. Planet comes down to two things. One: the director’s excellent eye for striking images (rusty-colored rivers, red hair in the water, ruins at the foot of the mountains). The other: One thoughtless action changes the entire course of the couple’s lives. This action happens in the middle of the film and will catch you by surprise, and it reveals the true heart of one of the lovers. Planet turns out to be the geography of a love affair. (CHARLES MUDEDE)
