    Boring, pretentious, predictable. Pretty bad.

    Vor allem in der ersten Hälfte sehr stark mit viel spritzigem Dialogwitz, danach wird dann etwas mehr die Romatikschiene gefahren. Toll gespielt und sehr schön fotografiert.

    I think this must be lacking the wit and irony intended because it seems to waste a great opportunity for self-awareness and genre defying moments and instead oozes cloying dullness. Darn. I really like Ewan too.

    Beautiful locations, a restrained romance and those charming accents. However, some odd choices in terms of story spoil the magic. Kristin Scott Thomas steals every scene in a rarely comic and histrionic role.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    After watching Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, I found myself with mixed feelings about the film. In fact, as the relationship between Dr Jones and Harriet blossoms, I felt increasingly unsettled by the way first Dr Jones and then Harriet dispose of their previous partners in such a nonchalant manner. Whilst it seems that Mary Jones may be partly responsible for her husband's 'defection' though her acceptance of a six-week assignment in Geneva from her employers, which leaves her husband…

    Beautiful cinematography but a dire film. The film is billed as a rom com but there's not enough "rom" or "com" to be anything of the sort, and that in itself is not a problem for me as I'm not a fan of either genre so am happy for a film to be more true to life. The story revolves around a nerdy scientist - McGregor - who is invited by a Sheik to introduce salmon fishing in the Yemen.…

    Sloppy sentimentalism trying to deliver a "feelgood" film. The "potentially possible" becomes actual and flourishes in the desert - however, the diverted water course is about as credible as the love affair. One or two good bits, coming mainly from Kristin Scott Thomas's PR secretary to the PM.
