Salmon Fishing in the Yemen by Lasse Hallström, 2011 (PG-13)

with Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Amr Waked, Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Mison (One Day), Catherine Steadman, Rachael Stirling, Tom Beard

A sheik with a love for the sport hopes to introduce fly-fishing to the Middle East and turns to uptight fisheries expert Fred Jones for help. Buoyed by the sheik's enthusiasm (and his comely English aide), Fred sets out to achieve the impossible. From the director of "Chocolat" and :( "Casanova".

It didn't take off. How sad, the idea, absurd at the beginning, develops to make more and more sense, in an environmentally responsible context, and it is great but a bit moralistic. The characters are longing for each other, but the chemistry is not there, and the characters do not have any personality aside from being nice, and him eventually not very good at communicating emotions. Anyway, the only good parts are when Kristin Scott Thomas enters a scene like a fury, with all the rush and pressure a prime minister PR person can have, with her dark sense of humor and practicality, to the relationship she has with the invisible husband and their kids.
