Reviews
Makes you think
I really liked this movie. It was a bit boring at times and a little too "quiet" but I see why. I really wish Jenai had given it more of a chance simply for Riley's sake. What she did to him was unforgivable! He tried so hard to make things better where she didn't connect with him and share her feelings enough.

One thing I really didn't like about the movie was they didn't explain where the pets went. I assumed they all went with the people until I saw a cat in the street.

If I was them I would have tried to learn to drive a boat and get to the UK because there had to be more people in a bigger place.

My only question was, what was in the email she read towards the end. I couldn't read it fast enough to see what was so devastating to her.

All in all I liked it because it made me wonder what I would do in that situation...for days!!

Minimal and meditative experience that allows for a lot of contemplation
When I saw the title, I knew that after I watched it I would certainly have a much stronger desire to visit Iceland, and now even in hopefully the same scenario. The plot is so alluring, it's something I could've caught myself thinking about in the past a lot. And of course, I would love the outcome of my struggle to be different, but at the same time, who am I to judge these two people for their choices.

Similar to the movie "Rester vertical" (2016), this one, as expected, abounds in picturesque photography that only makes so much more enjoyable the in the same way reduced a plot. So, what we have is beautiful photographic reduction and also reduction on the level of a plot, which doesn't provide too many fluctuations during the film, but rather allows for a lot of meditative contemplation: what would I do if I was put in the same situation, the most basic question I would ask myself. There's slight mood shifts and perhaps one change of course that introduces the mysterious and magical to the plot and also to the symbolism of photography, as if the film already didn't abound in these.

I can imagine many might have been stressed out by the ending of the movie because of their failure to identify with the characters' deeds, but I'm very happy that in the end, story wise it is not terminal. Throughout the credits, you can see one characters contemplating face, further wondering about the possibilities he has left on his hands to continue pursuing his creative goals. The only question is where will one find motivation for anything one does, actually whether motivation comes from within or from outside of us and so on. It's only very imaginative and enriching experience the film.

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.

Out of focus.....
Bokeh is a Japanese term that describes out of focus points of light. Its an appropriate starting point, when discussing this film.

Certainly, there is much about this film that's out of focus. It's message has a diffused quality that's difficult to pinpoint. Most specifically, its true message, as I understand it, is about the meaning of "existence".

As the film unfolds, what it means to be alive clearly has different meanings, for the main characters. One see's the beauty and opportunity in their newfound "freedom", whilst the other simply feels constrained, isolated and oppressed by it. Indeed, as the only supporting character hints at, we are "one and one and one".

The problem with this film is its so quiet and so subtle, that is, out of focus, that its very understandable, that its meaning may be overlooked.Personally I liked Bokeh but I can fully appreciate why others may not be so taken with it.

What is remarkable, is the visual quality of this film. Its wide screen cinematic's are really quite breath taking when combined with Iceland's exceptional, rugged natural beauty. In this respect this film really is quite outstanding.

All in all a mixed film that I personally believe, needed to offer a little more focus, to have broad appeal but is still an interesting watch nonetheless. Seven out of ten from me.

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.

post event story
I am writing a review of this because there were so many bad ones, and I disagree. I decided to watch it based on the one good review I saw, and I'm glad I did. It is a nice simple, well made study of grief and the stark mood of it is perfect. I recommend this movie to anyone who doesn't need the flash of a typical science fiction or fantasy story, but appreciates a good allegory.

Nope, don't do it! I saw the trailer and ignored the bad reviews - a mistake!
Nope, don't do it! I saw the trailer and ignored the bad reviews - a mistake! Basically anything interesting in this film that would make it look appealing was all in the trailer. And that trailer did look appealing, but that's all you get. It seems the budget for this film was someones credit card... it was that bad. I can do a better job with my phones camera and create a more interesting film. But what really killed this movie was not just the only two terrible actors, it was the dumb ending. I gave this a 2/10 only because the directing and cinematography were on point. Don't do it.

post apocalypse without soul
I understand the approach that was taken in this film, visually its beautiful. I understand how the characters evolve as they do and the direction that you are taken on.

Unfortunately what happens is the obvious; the picturesqueness of the scenery becomes his focal point. He sees everything as a perfect picture and is unwilling to fight for survival. Her inability to deal with his blindness becomes her prison. Neither know how to really fight to survive, both give up before they discover they are really alone and what being alone really means.

To be fair if I were trapped in Iceland and woke up one day the last person on Earth what would I do? I would get a boat and sail to Europe. I would drive to southern France or Italy and spend the rest of my days on the Mediterranean (or go who knows where else). To give up so easily and be carefree while doing it - its depressing and so anti- apocalyptic that its almost unforgivable. Depressing not in the sense that being alone is depressing - but depressing as the writer didn't have the sense on how much things mean anything in the end and that survival can be enough.

If you are alone - and I mean THAT alone - your objectives should be EXTREMELY clear. You must get and maintain: shelter, supplies, and safety. To get sick is to die. To get hurt is to die. To go hungry, cold, trapped, or any other foreseeable thing means you are dead. Love to hate this - hate to love it.

Fantastic Idea, Poorly Executed
I've been waiting to see this movie for ages. I saw a trailer over a year ago and thought the concept was amazing, two people who might just be the last two people on Earth. Whoa! Unfortunately, the concept is the best thing about this movie. It starts out great, the scene is set (and the scenery is so good it makes me want to visit Iceland!) and although there are hints at what happens, there is no concrete evidence and no one to ask.

The scene is set for an amazing, independent movie to blow your mind with a message of epic proportions! Alas, the message never appears and you sit through an hour and a half of a couple trying to while away the hours waiting for the inevitable.

I SO wanted to love this movie, but it has no point and no conclusion and after watching the movie, you realise that there is actually no reason for making or watching the movie. If there was something that happened, it would have a point, but there isn't.

The most dramatic part of this movie is its colossal failure. The acting is OK, the scenery is fantastic and the build up is great. Sadly, the film goes downhill after the initial 10 minutes until you are finally put out of your misery when the credits roll.

If you want to watch a movie of this ilk, watch The Blue Lagoon instead as it is a similar concept of solitude, but with characters who have depth and strength.

Sorry Bokeh crew, I was rooting for you but it's a poor movie

For the sake of our lives
Every day, for the sake of our lives we spend the blessing of drinking water, electricity, food that has been processed and we just use it. We are even daring to think that we could live alone, without needing anyone ... This plot is for us to remember the value of all the people who in one way or another have improved the world in which we live, and that we really could not live alone because we wanted it or not a species that we need from one to the other. But it seems to me that the most important thing is to appreciate, to care for whom we have decided to share our day, and that we do not make our relationship a unique system, it is not enough to supply food or comfort, but to be aware of what our companion feels and avoid Where our conscience does not, absolve us. Deep, splendid and daring is a production that must be taken to more people so that we do not forget the value.
