In a Moroccan desert, two boys fooling around with a gun take a pop at a passing bus – this detonates a chain of events that will link the two boys, an American tourist couple's (Brad Pitt & Cate Blanchett) frantic struggle to survive, a nanny (Adriana Barraza) illegally crossing into Mexico with two American children, and a Japanese teen rebel (Rinko Kikuchi) whose father is sought by the police in Tokyo. Also starring García Bernal.

A slow moving movie but well worth the watch. It interweives the lives and connections of different people and different cultures, bringing them all together in an abstract way. Some scenes were not worth the film time given them, but overall a fascinating film that captivated me until the end.
Loved Brad Pitts 'bags' under his eyes. Loved the contrast of an dusty desert to the night lights of Tokyo. My favorite story line was the most contemporary tale, the naked lonely soul desperate to connect, which gave insights into a world without sound.
Worth seeing but overhyped as something different. In the... More end its just same old Hollywood.Hide
