Michael (Law) hesitantly arranges for a prostitute while on a business trip in Vienna. His marriage is souring. His wife (Weisz) is already having an affair with a younger man. His relationship with his girlfriend ends and she travels home to Brazil with stops in Denver because of a snow storm. There she meets an older man (Hopkins) looking for his daughter who is about the same age. She also meets an ex-con (Foster) who is a sex offender. She decides to shack up with him for the night.
I could go on and on but you get the idea. It would seem the idea here is to keep the audience entertained by showing off some acting excellence. There is one great scene with Hopkins attending an AA meeting that fits the bill. But we don't get much depth with any of the characters so we don't care much about anyone. The film really doesn't have much to say. It's not like everyone's issues are resolved.
I'm not sure I understand the title because we don't really end up in the place we started. To the filmmaker's credit the movie looks good. With scenes in Vienna, Bratislava, Slovakia, London, Paris and Minneapolis subbing for Denver, the exteriors are nicely presented. This is certainly not the best film of this style, but not the worst either.
The audience must pay full attention to the stories as they unwind as there is a huge cast of characters and most of them, even though briefly at times, are interconnected. The film opens on Vienna where a photographer is taking stills of a Bratislava girl `Blanca' (Gabriela Marcinkova) who is being molded into a call girl while her hesitant sister observes.Read more ›
