2030

Berlinale Day 01, the second movie of the kick-off day was the Vietnamese ‘2030’.

the official imd.com plot:

In a near future Vietnam where global warming and rising seawater levels have forced cultivation to be done on floating farms, a strong-willed woman has to make a critical decision about her ex-lover, a suspect of her husband’s murder.

The film has been shot brilliantly (for me it is the the best made element of it) and the universe that the story settles in has been created in a very intelligent way (on the screen). So we have great photography and nice scenery, the plot however is a bit to shallow (IMO). When you compare it to the quality of the other elements of the film you get the impression that the form overgrew the content. Yes, the movie is based on a short story, but it seemed like the short story is not long enough for a full length feature. 6/10.
