Circling the same old story
360 features a multi-generational, multi-ethnic ensemble cast jetting around the world, randomly running into one another and having improbably intimate talks about love and relationships in airport lounges and other such cinematically apposite locales. A young girl has just found out about her boyfriend’s cheating, a woman nearing middle age is currently having an affair, an old man looks back at his adulterous life with regretful wisdom… Yet another ‘mature’ take on love with absolutely nothing original, convincing or even charming to say.
360 | Directed by Fernando Meirelles (UK, Austria, France, Brazil 2011) with Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins. Starts August 16
