10,000 KM
Remember the slightly awkward moments between Joaquin Phoenix and his operating system in the not-too-distant future of Spike Jonze's “Her,” where a relationship was blossomed between a man and a machine? The lack of a physical element in that scenario starts to feel normal because one half of that equation never had a body. But in today's equivalent, when a man is dancing with a laptop in his hand, desperately trying to cling on to a loved one, the lack of physical presence isn't just awkward; it's heartbreaking. Carlos Marques-Marcet's stirring feature debut “10,000 KM,” about a relationship getting tested by long distance, takes a minimal approach in wrestling with the emotional demons borne when a long-term couple get separated for a year. Two actors. Two locations. Two laptops. One bittersweet movie.
