Chivalry shambles

OUT NOW! Gael Garcia Bernal fails his chivalry test in LONELIEST PLANET.

“Loneliest Planet”
 tells the harrowing story
 of an engaged couple, 
Alex and Nica, and their
 local guide traveling across
 Georgia.

Encounters along 
the way, notably with an old man armed with a rifle, test the couple’s bond: when Alex reflexively shields himself with Nica before realizing his mistake and reversing their positions, their relationship struggles to recover. Set against the solitary and breathtaking Caucasus Mountains, Loneliest Planet uses minimalist cinematography to achieve a voyeuristic perspective on basic human interaction.

Loneliest Planet | Directed by Julia Lektov (USA,
Germany 2011) with Gael
 Garcia Bernal, Hani Furstenberg, Bidzina Gujabidze. Starts January 3
