Gut-wrenchingly pointless
I can't think of a single redeeming aspect of this film. It starts off slowly, a trend which continues throughout the entire 1hr 36min.

The main themes of this film are loneliness, despair, depression and existential dread. There is little relief from the ever-present burden of boredom and grayness. There is also no payoff in terms of plot or story.

This could be forgiven if there were any depth to the characters of Riley and Jenai. The two main and only characters become tedious and predictable in their mannerisms.

The film is very hard work, made even more difficult by the soundtrack which consists of a New Age minimalist piano arrangement.

The Most Boring Movie I Have Ever Seen
I am a big fan of "end of the world" stories but this movie disappointed me in a big way. Nothing interesting happens in this movie, the characters are impossible to like or care about and the ending is... unsatisfying, to say the least. I would recommend you watch your oven pre-heating over watching this movie.

I have awarded 2 stars since Maika Monroe is quite attractive.

An unsuccessful attempt to follow the footsteps of a good movie
Yes, this movie sort of plagiarizes, of at least tries to create sometimes similar, alas, unsuccessfully, to the pretty good work from New Zealand from 1985 called the Quiet Earth. But unlike the Quiet Earth that has characters, the reason which explains why all the humanity suddenly disappeared, save for a very few, and a rather impressive climax, this movie is just boring. At the beginning I thought that it's a remake of the old film, with better special effects and perhaps even better script, but was very disappointed to the hollowness of this venture. I give it two stars instead of one for a good camera work.

Although beautiful it lacks content
It is beautiful in scenery and music. But... It lacks so much in human intellect and a fight for survival and does not address the human need to question and find answers. If it addresses this at all is with the suicide of the woman. The man just seems to want to act like nothing is that big of deal. That there is nothing they can do about the situation so they should just get on with enjoying their lives. Maybe if he spent time being more proactive trying to find answers then maybe the woman would have not become so depressed and killed herself. Most humans would have gone looking around at government facilities like the police or the embassies. Most people would try to get home. If you can not fly you can take a boat. Most people would arm themselves. They would keep searching for answers and try to get home. Again the scenery and music were beautiful but it just lacks human intelligence and just leaves you thinking the two characters are really stupid and dense and lack any passion for existence.

Bokeh is thematically devastating but intimately visual and narratively poetic.
Pronounced as you would with a 'bouquet' of flowers, Bokeh is a Japanese word relating to a photographic technique that produces a pleasing but blurry background when there is sufficient distance between the subject and the background. The aesthetic quality of this technique was discovered long before the word was coined, which is why any photographer who is a movie buff will be curious to watch this film, and especially since the film is set in every photographer's dream location – Iceland!

Reminiscent of the recent sci-fi vehicle starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Prat in Passengers, a film about the hopelessness of an uncertain future, Bokeh follows suit about two people in a nightmarish situation where their relationship is put to the test. This is the story of an American couple on vacation in Iceland but as we soon learn, there is more at stake than their relationship. There's relatable chemistry between It Follows star Maika Monroe as Jenai and her partner Riley (Matt O'Leary), a photographer who prefers the medium format and vintage Rolleiflex to a modern and high end digital camera. Shortly after they begin their vacation, they experience a bizarre event that places them as the only people in the Icelandic capital of Reykjavík. In between searching for other people and capturing Iceland's picturesque landscapes, they encounter Biblical allegories that question the very existence of life itself. This then tears into the fabric of their relationship when one becomes an optimist and the other a hopeless pessimist.

The result is a devastating and at times depressing comparison of two individuals who are looking at the same situation but begin to see it in totally opposing perspectives. It's an irony in itself given the titular theme and the surreal nature of photography as a medium that can be attractively haunting on one end and astoundingly intimate on the other. In this regard, the film does sway towards the existential philosophies in a Terence Malick film and in the process reaches a hit-or-miss in the point it tries to make. Is it pretentious? Not really, and given the level of intimacy in the storytelling coupled with the passionately composed cinematography, Bokeh is both visually and narratively poetic. And like Iceland itself, this is a small indie film but packed with just the right amount of mood, tone and curves that you don't see at first, much like the old school art of developing art.

An utter waste of your time.
The premise of this was excellent, it could have been so good.

Nothing happens! Absolutely nothing. It's boring. Lacks direction. Does not flow well.

Only positives are the locations, Iceland is just gorgeous as always... and that the actual cinematography is pleasant.

I don't write reviews generally, but this just could not pass me by without me being vocal about how annoyed I am that I stuck with it thinking I'd give a rats ass by the end of it.... I really didn't.

Do not waste 90 minutes of your life watching this.

Fascinating
I loved this movie. Have watched it 3 times and can't wait to see it again. As the other reviews stated, it is basically about nothing. A young couple go to Norway for a vacation and when they wake up, find that they are the only people remaining anywhere. There is a cat and a horse also in the movie, showing that there is life somewhere. They also come upon an elderly man, who ends up dying. At first, they enjoy themselves, taking things from the grocer and other stores, as they please. They do find a car that is in perfect condition and explore. I loved seeing the scenery, as that's about all you get --- scenery and these 2 kids. I won't ruin the ending, but if you have an hour and a half to just relax and enjoy the ride, you won't be sorry. If you are looking for award winning acting, forget it.

Don't Waste Your Precious Time, (or: It's Not Art Either)
Do you know when you read the users' reviews and somehow tend to believe the bad ratings come from the people who don't really appreciate "art", "beauty" and "silence"? Well, that's not the case (at least not in here).

Summary without spoiler: the Icelandic Board of Tourism and a car company decided to spend their money on a horrendous awfully scripted movie, filmed in an incredibly surreal scenery.

Tip: turn the volume down and enjoy the beautiful landscapes.

Want to know how Iceland looks? Well, you'll see it here.
"Riley, this is starting to freak me out. I know, I don't get it at all."

What if you wake up one day and realize that you are the only person walking on this earth? That's what Jenai (Maika Monroe) and Riley (Matt O'Leary) experience when they spend their holidays in Iceland. Initially they behave like perfectly normal tourists. Admiring the natural beauty of Iceland while Riley takes pictures of it, with his old-fashioned-looking camera. The day they find out they are completely alone, it's the start of a fascinating journey on the one hand. But on the other hand it's also a disappointing story in which they undergo a range of human reactions. First they experience a confused and panicky mood in which they anxiously try to understand what's going on. There's no immediate, plausible explanation for the sudden disappearance of the population. No dead bodies or signs of destruction. No coverage of the phenomenon since all news channels are offline. No posts on news sites or e-mails. Human existence is abruptly ended somehow.

Then they switch to an euphoric mood, realizing that they can get anything they desire and have the place to themselves. They can pick out any of the abandoned cars and choose the house they like the most. After that, they start realizing they really are on their own and certain situations could be life threatening. The result. Irritation, self-pity, and frictions between the two survivors. Especially Jenai falls into melancholic moods. Most of all, she wants to return home. There's only one problem. They are stuck on this deserted island. She also struggles with the "Why?" question concerning their situation and whether all this has to do with a divine destiny. Riley however, sees this as a fresh start for humanity. An opportunity to build a new civilization with the two of them. It still looks like a tourist trip to him and he wants to make lots of pictures of picturesque places as possible.

I admit my thoughts always strayed to the key question "What would I do in the exact situation?". Try and find my dream-car? Choose my dream house and plunder a local electronics store so I can equip myself with the latest gadgets? Total freedom. Indulging myself in everything I desire, without worrying about the price tag. A dream come true. I admit. Watching a movie is also a bit of putting yourself into a fictional situation. The only thing is, it shouldn't be in such a way that you lose the complete attention. And that's exactly what happened to me, while watching "Bokeh".

Perhaps the biggest flaw of the film is the limited content. There isn't much interesting happening. Most of the film is filled with stunning snapshots accompanied by minimalistic piano sounds. If you've never been to Iceland and you can't imagine what it looks like, you'll certainly have a pretty good idea after seeing this film. It seemed as if "Bokeh" was sponsored by the Iceland tourist offices. Beautiful images of nature, full of glaciers, geysers and flower fields. No hurdles of zombies. No terrifying aliens who started an invasion to claim the resources of the earth. Ultimately, the film offers no explanation about the cause of it all. Like Riley and Jenai you'll still be groping the dark about this.

The only thing I was wondering is where the film title actually came from. Initially I thought it was an Icelandic expression. Turns out, according to Wikipedia, it's a term used in photography. The description is as follows: "The aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens". Now you can ask yourself what this is related to. Is it the way Riley makes his pictures? Or is it about the hazy content of the film? Another unanswered question.
