My companion will testify, hiding behind her drooling for Ewan McGregor, that this is a decent watchable movie.
A light comedy for achieving the impossible, something not even realistic but theoretically possible, fly-fishing in the desert.
I consider fishing a decent hobby, specially with those with patience and nerve to just wait and contemplate and hope for a fish to hook and cook 🙂 NOT FOR ME!
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, is a feel good movie, that shows us how these characters get their world shaken and change the way they see and believe in everything around them (here’s hoping it happens to some of us too), so in short, impossible is nothing.
We’ve all been stuck in that one place, that relationship, that job that drains and boxes us in, so when this happens you tend to attach to that crazy impossible thing, just to get away… That is what happens here, a kind of hit rock bottom so you can thrive again!
As an ensemble there was synergy, but one special character really got to me, the evil hearted, no morals Press officer who managed to manipulate every single thing for the benefit of some politicians, and in my opinion some of the funniest moments in the movie thanks to Kristin Scott Thomas.
Great for a chill out evening with a glass of your alcohol of choice and good company.
