Ammonite ★★

i’ve spent many hours of my life seeking out stories like this. not all of them are (or have to be) love stories, but even when love isn’t the main focus there’s still one element that every good film needs: chemistry. and ammonite has none. that isn’t the only thing lacking here, but it’s the most glaring reason why this never clicked for me. i sometimes give the benefit of the doubt to some of the worst films i’ve seen because they made me feel something, but here there is nothing to feel. i felt neither happy or sad, no desire to see the characters together or apart. i have no idea what went wrong here or where it started going wrong, all i know is that it doesn’t work for me
