Featuring the most indelible scenes inside a tent since The Blair Witch Project, this subtitle-free study of engaged backpackers (Hani Furstenberg and Gael García Bernal) and their Caucasus Mountain tour guide (Bidzina Gujabidze) is based on a Hemingway-influenced short story by departing Portland writer Tom Bissell. As such, it hinges on one instinctual decision that colors every interaction before and after. That unthinking choice is made unforgettable by director Julia Loktev (Day Night Day Night), who stages it as a kind of dire dance step.
