To learn more about this film, let’s take a look at an early review from Brian Orndorf:
“Early Review For The Movie 360
“360” is a story of sexual gamesmanship that takes a familiar multi-character journey around the globe. Director Fernando Meirelles (“The Constant Gardner,” “City of God”) has numerous subplots to juggle and societal urgencies to dissect, leaving “360” a sharply paced picture that’s more about ephemeral highlights than a lasting dramatic sting. A smoothly manufactured, intermittently upsetting look at impulses and desires, the feature boasts an exceptional cast to carry the brief but difficult challenges facing the characters, while Meirelles keeps the film humming along, braiding these strangers into a single display of yearning, albeit a craving that takes the occasional unsavory turn.
An Eastern European woman obsessed with easy money, Mirkha (Lucia Siposova) joins a prostitution ring, dragging along her sister, Anna (Gabriela Marcinkova), for support. Her first client is Michael (Jude Law), a lonely businessman married to Rose (Rachel Weisz), who’s desperate to end her affair with a younger man. Laura (Maria Flor) is a South American excited to leave Europe and return home, striking up a conversation with John (Anthony Hopkins) on a plane ride. Traveling to Phoenix to identify the body of a dead girl who may be his runaway daughter, John is eager for company, planning to dine with Laura once their layover troubles are resolved. When a chance meeting at an airport café with Tyler (Ben Foster) proves to be irresistible, Laura invites the skittish man back to her hotel room, unaware that he’s a convicted sex offender. And an Islamic man (Jamel Debbouze) faces a religious crisis when his feelings for a married co-worker (Dinara Drukarova) become too much to bear, unaware that the woman is dealing with her own relationship troubles.
Loosely adapted from the play “La Ronde” by Arthur Schnitzler, “360” is scripted by Peter Morgan, the acclaimed writer of “The Queen” and “The Last King of Scotland.” Although the temptation is there to drill into the sickness of the characters with a violent display of misery (a.k.a. the Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu approach), Morgan is more fascinated with chance encounters and near misses, keeping the material surprisingly light for such a profound topic. It’s hardly a romantic comedy, but there’s a certain ease with the violations here that keeps the dysfunction approachable. “360” is less about punishment and more about observance, placing the frazzled characters in disorienting situations to see how they react.
It’s a twisted road ahead for the community of “360,” with all of these characters tied together in some fringe manner, with a few directly stepping on one another’s toes as the story unfolds.”
