If you are anything like Dawn and me, then you have no clue what this movie is about other than perceiving it might be a genie orgy or something crazier.
I can assure you, it's not!
The marketing for this film is off-putting, completely misleading, and woefully uninspiring.
The film itself, on the other hand, is absolutely beautiful.
I don't quite know how best to describe it, but I can say we couldn't take our eyes off it. It's wholly unique. Powerful. Sentimental. Quirky. Meaningful. Surprising. Incredibly rendered cinematography and special effects. A fascinating, unfamiliar twist that contrasts well with what we think we know about those three infamous wishes. Two mesmerizing actors cast in pitch-perfect roles who do and say exactly what those characters should.
IMDB's 6.5 is, to me, criminal. I'd give it a strong 8.
The film will come, go, and be missed by mainstream audiences mostly because of one single (yet massive) marketing fail: a terrible trailer.
But for those of you who do go, I assure you, you'll remember Three Thousand Years of Longing and be emotionally moved by it.
Cool film, all the way 'round.
