In view of that it seems a bit odd that Magnolia pictures offers a synopsis of the `plot' and that should be shared here: `Neil (Ben Affleck) is an American traveling in Europe who meets and falls in love with Marina (Olga Kurylenko), an Ukrainian divorcée who is raising her 10-year-old daughter Tatiana (Tatiana Chiine) in Paris. The lovers travel to Mont St. Michel, the island abbey off the coast of Normandy, basking in the wonder of their newfound romance. Neil makes a commitment to Marina, inviting her to relocate to his native Oklahoma with Tatiana. He takes a job as an environmental inspector and Marina settles into her new life in America with passion and vigor. After a holding pattern, their relationship cools. Marina finds solace in the company of another exile, the Catholic priest Father Quintana (Javier Bardem), who is undergoing a crisis of faith.Read more ›
If you know a bit about Terrence Malick's life, you suspect that these reflections are autobiographical: the 60-something Malick probing how the 30- or 40-something Malick learned to partake in genuine love relations. But that doesn't matter much. The force of the inquiry does not depend on its status as autobiography.
The potential viewer of this film faces two questions: do you want to reflect on how you came, or might someday come, to love? and do you want to reflect on this from a specifically Christian point of view?
As I said, I don't myself share that point of view: that's not how I conceptualize my own learning-how-to-love experiences. But then I didn't learn how to love in Oklahoma either. (I did it, or tried, in Los Angeles, with a woman from farther away than France.) The film's reflections are specific to the experiences of its maker, but they explore a universal human problem.
The film is not entertainment. I aims not to sweep you away from your life for two hours but to plunge you more deeply into it.Read more ›

I really wanted to like this movie… but no. Couldn't even finish it - Super slow, felt very long and depressing.
Probably just not for me :/

brilliant insight to humanity; this is a film that gives us just enough narrative to show us that we do not live a life of narrative; but of experience, observation and feeling. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Dr. Christoph hahner
