    A wallop of cod is the best way to describe Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, a Brit pic rom-com for dum-dums adapted from Paul Torday’s implausibly popular novel by Simon (Full Monty) Beaufoy for director Lasse Hallström. The appealing Emily Blunt is cast Miss Hyphen-Ated (actually Chetwynde-Talbot), an investment banker working for a rich Yemenese Sheikh (Amr Waked) who wants the opportunity to fish for salmon in the desert. Ewan McGregor co-stars as the least likely cinema scientist since Saffron…

    An idea of this not happy man try to report this one hope dreamer who has money to build a salmon fishing in the Yemen.

    The idea was so weird, at the first time I never really get it. Then, the story was so not simple but really cute at the end. And, who knows you'll find a zip of thrilling inside of this movie. Dame, you never know.

    confirming my sappy old man years have well and truly begun I found this film rather charming. It's all rather pretty too.

    [English/ Spanish review]

    For the most part, a pretty functional contemporary feel-good adult best-seller adaptation. showing many of the usual downsides (fascination towards money and power, disguised in a supposedly ambiguous portrayal of the good-mannered eccentric Sheik, an approach to "foreign" cultures from a bird's eye view, predictability and a mostly flat mise en scene), but also many of the ups to be hoped for: great main and supporting cast, good dialogues, nice cinematography, a fluent pace coming from a…

    I'd put this one off for months, years even, but it was most satisfying once I finally settled down to watch it. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is a quiet, mostly light-hearted story of romance. McGregor and Blunt are a fisheries expert and consultant, respectively, who are tasked with populating a dry river-bed in the Yemen desert. All for the "whims" of a sheikh, who loves fly fishing and wants to bring the sport to Yemen... and has a grander…
