Sky :- Watch Sky on YoutubeonFire, People make impulsive decisions that change the course of their lives all the time and director Fabienne Berthaud tries to explore that in her latest feature, Sky, but winds up making her main character’s journey haphazard to the point of feeling too disjointed and meaningless. The movie stars Diane Kruger as Romy, a french woman on vacation with her husband (Gilles Lellouche) in the American desert. It’s clear that their relationship is on the rocks but they try to hold it together until a heavy night of drinking compels Romy to finally leave him once and for all. With no plan whatsoever, she takes off, hitches a ride and winds up in Las Vegas where she meets and falls for a cowboy (Norma Reedus). The plot description is limited because Berthaud and co-writer Pascal Arnold run with minimal structure and almost no clear trajectory. On the one hand, the lack of framework is refreshing and freeing. Sky truly feels like a slice of life, giving you the opportunity to see what happens when someone steps out into the world with no idea of where she’s going or what she’s doing. As someone who sticks to a fairly rigid schedule, there’s something inspiring about Romy’s gusto, but watching a woman you barely know bop around from place to place for 100 minutes doesn’t make for a particularly compelling feature narrative. Berthaud’s first major misstep is not focusing on Romy at the very beginning of the film.
