Trippy trailer for The Loneliest Planet starring Gael Garcia Bernal looks beautiful and haunting

Jul. 5, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Coming across as something of a visceral journey, THE LONELIEST PLANET features Gael Garcia Bernal and Hani Furstenberg as a couple on a backpacking trip that seemingly goes awry.  Directed by Julia Loktev (DAY NIGHT DAY NIGHT), the film has a very TREE OF LIFE vibe going for it with a somewhat minimalist style.  Just with less dinosaurs.

Grab your walking stick:

The film has an eerie feel to it; the kind of film that has you on edge from start to finish, because at any moment anything can happen, much like real life.  The cinematography looks great and the leads seem to have the right kind of chemistry to be a convincing real life couple.  Whether or not the anxiety of the trailer plays out in the film is another story. 

Here's the synopsis:

Alex (Gael Garcia Bernal) and Nica (Hani Furstenberg) are young, in love and engaged to be married. The summer before their wedding, they are backpacking in the Caucasus Mountains in Georgia. The couple hire a local guide to lead them on a camping trek, and the three set off into a stunning wilderness, a landscape that is both overwhelmingly open and frighteningly closed. Walking for hours, they trade anecdotes, play games to pass the time of moving through space. And then, a momentary misstep, a gesture that takes only two or three seconds, a gesture that's over almost as soon as it begins. But once it is done, it can't be undone. Once it is done, it threatens to undo everything the couple believed about each other and about themselves.

THE LONELIEST PLANET will hit theaters on October 26, 2012.

I really dig Gael Garcia Bernal - fantastic actor. So i'll prolly check this out. However, didnt know about that zorro tidbit, and i'm not sure how i feel about that. Random note: I'd like to see him work with Nolan. it seems that would be an interesting combination

Looks cool..

but whats up with the sound it was all muffled? Did this happen to anyone else? Hoping for the best THE TREE OF LIFE was pretentious piece of crap movie. It tried to be something so much more then it was. I'm sure I'll get a lot of thumbs down for that and neg comments but IDC it was just a terrible film, it was shot really good that was beautiful, I loved that to death, but the plot tried to be so complex and it just fell upon itself.

Look at all those awards it has gotten.

Guess I know that I will not be seeing this. Any independent film that wins that many awards always turns out to be crap.
