I saw the movie in the American Film Festival in Deauville. The movie had been just edited and matt Damon who was at the screening saw it for the first time too.
The feeling is strange, deep and surprisingly strong!!!
During the whole film you just wonder why. Why did they get lost, why did they shoot that F.... Damned movie which is boring.
As time goes by you start to feel what will happen, in fact you think, you feel probably like both characters do. "What am I doing here" What will happen??" And you walk with them, you suffer with them and you laugh with them (shortly).
At the end of the movie you don't know where you live anymore, and you don't know yet what happened to you.
In fact you've been in the desert with them.
At the end of the show, everyone who stayed till the end applause the masterwork, and Matt Damon.
He was so moved by our reaction and by his movie that he cried and thanked everyone.
I lived that sunday morning the most tremendous cinematographic emotion I never had.
I simply shook his hand and said to him (Matt) " Thank You". He simply answered "Thanks for been here".
Honestly I still didn't recover from that moment (6 monthes ago) and I can't wait to get it on DVD because I'm quite sure it will never be released in France.
