10.000 Km 2014

     Alex and Sergi are living together in a flat in Barcelona.  Alex receives an email inviting her to come to Los Angeles to live and work on her photography.  She will receive a grant for her expenses.  Sergi wants her to take this opportunity but it is difficult for both of them to be so far away.  Sergi is studying for his board tests in education.  He is working now as a teacher.
    The beginning of this film is the two characters interacting together in person.  Then it is the two characters interacting with each other on the computer.  There are a lot of scenes of Google Earth too.  That seems to be the theme of Alex's photography?  I think Sergi acts like a spoiled brat several times and the couple seems to have a thin connection with each other.  They claim to be in love but this may only be physical and not as much emotional love?  I just didn't find very much going on in this film?  There are subtitles so you need to pay attention but there isn't much to pay attention to?  2* (I didn't like this movie) 

99 min, Comedy directed by Carlos Marques-Marcet with Natalia Tena, David Verdaguer, Sirius Flatz.
