A traumatic accident leaves Adrienne (Sienna Miller) and Matteo (Diego Luna) in real life, taking them on a troubling journey into the duality of their moments together. As they navigate today’s incredible reality, they must rediscover the love that really connects them and relive the beautiful memories of the beginning of their romance.
The rest of this wonderful film is the opposite of the superficial, and the strangeness of the opening scene does indeed underscore the universal truth that Wander Darkly has uncovered. Adrienne woke up in the hospital after filling her windshield with blinding lightning.
In particular, he woke up and stood next to his own bed and looked at his wounded and bloody body. Pieces of speech came to him like a dream. He heard he was dead. When they got the message, he saw his parents crying in the waiting room. Adrienne chases her own stretcher through the dark streets.
But Adrienne and Matteo are doing poorly, despite being a small independent couple. “You are my peace and my truth,” Adrienne said to Matteo in a scene. It doesn’t look like that.
On the other hand, both characters are socially organized people who are attractive and often selfish, aimless and opinionated. Car accident or baby or not, their wedding ring never seemed worthy of protection.
Wander Darkly moves smoothly between the enigmatic and the romantic, pushing the boundaries of the genre. He takes us on a special and moving journey. Miller offers excellent shifting performance and can handle difficult film tone changes.
Difficult and concerned, Luna swings between the pleasant and everyday spaces of the cinema. The existential drama that deeply influenced screenwriter and director Tara Miele explores how we construct stories of love and loss from the fragmented memories of our lives.
The film’s greatest strength is the combination of the incredibly charismatic duo of Miller and Luna, which makes Adrienne and Matteo’s relationship believable (not to mention their metaphysical crisis), even though it’s not in Honey’s script.
The writing frightens them especially with the flashbacks. Because they don’t alternate perfectly between living in Adrienne’s memory and commenting on her; In addition to the tricky dialogue, the device mutes the power of each scene, both temporarily, rather than amplifying it, so to speak.
Alex Weston’s squeaky piano is a beautiful. Cohesive accompaniment to Carolina Costa’s dizzying cinematography that instantly goes from local to surreal. Firing a shot requires militaristic precision. Sometimes the characters in their shirts come out of the room and come back with another, the only clue is that weeks have passed.
Miele records the film using the characters’ emotional flow and tries to keep it simple by asking the couple to express exactly how they feel and why. Focusing on changing Christopher Lawrence’s costume will likely be the least interested audience.
