You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (Quick Review)

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

“You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” is a comedy for cynics and pessimists. For everybody else, it’s a tragedy. The prologue of the protagonists exposes them as people pummeled with problems and worries. However, I must say that this isn’t a movie about the problems, but the solutions that are stimulated by minds that are stuck in desperation and misery.

Marriages are ended in exchange for affairs, but not for the reason one would normally suspect. Entering such affairs is also an act of leaving past responsibilities and aggravations, which could bring more pleasure than anything else. This “solution” is put into use by our characters, and we can see that they feel happiness. But then, they stumble upon a thing called Consequences, and it is not startling if they end up with less than what they had before. There is much anguish, anxiety and sadness in “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger”, but not much is done to make up for it.

Problems can cause people to abandon their lives and venture on what they call, “The Road to Happiness.” They believe that what’s behind them is gone forever, when it truth, it just needed a little fixing.
