User Reviews: It was difficult getting through this film. Not one of the characters seemed human. Lots of ideas which don’t really fit together. A very disjointed film in that quirks of each character are revealed, but it all seems meaningless. There is no suspense, apart from.just waiting for the end of the film. Many scenes are drawn out. The men are all unecessarily quiet or grumpy. When the kid asks ‘where are we going’ I felt exactly the same way about the film. It seems like the director started filming without a script, and then just made it up as he went along, but never really coming up with a consistent thread or story. "You look to the stars? I look to the stars. Some say fools look to the stars. You’re not wrong. Four sides, four different winds. Energy comes from all around you and is drawn to the earth"
If that type of dialogue is gripping for you, as well as other unrelated and disjointed hippy pseudoscience, then maybe you’ll like this film. My guess is most audiences are more sophisticated. Well, anyway; overall a film with little emotion, little engagement with the characters and a meandering ‘plot’ (using the word plot loosely).
