Salmon Fishing in the Yemen — An easy witty romance to be discovered — 8*/10

  • Story: Love the details. Very captivating. Excellent overall. However, it falls flat from the moment they open the sluice. After that, it seems creativity went out the window.
  • Characters: Nice, with plenty of details for the most part.
  • Dialogs: Great with pleasant structure, wit and repartee.
  • Scenario: Nicely split up between the different parts.
  • Actors: Great work on the British side. The Yemenite side wasn't as strong, but probably just because the movie was aimed at occidentals so they didn't pay as much attention to the "foreign" roles. Cast members include Ewan McGregor, who was great in this very low key role, Emily Blunt and Kristin Scott Thomas.
  • Photography: Pretty.
  • Sound: Nice music and score.
  • Special effects: None visible.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Who is it for? Those looking for a romantic movie that doesn't look too much like one.
