Plot
A business executive (Law) is tempted into infidelity on a business trip to Vienna while back home his wife (Weisz) is sleeping with a photographer. The snapper's girlfriend, in turn, is leaving him when she bumps into a dad (Hopkins) who's looking for his daughter...


Review
360
Like tumbling dominoes, Peter Morgan’s script follows a series of seemingly unrelated characters as one’s actions impacts on the next. So, in Vienna, a businessman (Jude Law) agonises over sleeping with a hooker while at home, his wife (Rachel Weisz) cheats on him with a photographer whose departing girlfriend runs into a father (Anthony Hopkins) searching for his daughter. Then there’s the lovelorn dentist and the Russian mobster. You’ll care less though. The characters are so underdeveloped as to be opaque and this circuitous and sluggish story merely ends up chasing its tail to an uneven and unconvincing end.


Verdict
A great disappointment by the City Of God man's high standards.

Throughout the countries of the United Kingdom, Paris, Austria, Brazil and Slovakia; 360 explores the lives of couples and their sexual enco... More
