Yes

The latest from Sally Potter ("Orlando") is an absurd relationship drama between an Irish-American woman (Joan Allen) and a Lebanese man (Simon Abkarian) who are cast as representations of their genders, nationalities and values even as they navigate their affair of the heart. They also speak mostly in rhymes, a gimmick that works if you're Dr. Seuss or Shakespeare but fails utterly here.

She, as Allen is referred to in the credits, is a scientist living in London and trapped in a loveless marriage. He is a former surgeon and refugee reduced to working as a chef in a high-end restaurant. When they meet at a party, they embark on a passionate fling, only to bump up against the differences that threaten to drive them apart. The movie's low point has She and He--symbols of America and Islam--cast aspersions at each other, with, natch, the American coming off as the villain. The rest of the film isn't any smarter. You'd be well advised to say no to "Yes." Starring Joan Allen, Simon Abkarian and Sam Neill. Directed and written by Sally Potter. Produced by Christopher Sheppard and Andrew Fierberg. An SPC release. Drama. Arabic-language; subtitled. Rated R for language and some sexual content. Running time: 100 min
