Terrence Malick's 'To the Wonder' is sparse but eloquent

Love gained and love lost are the subjects of “To the Wonder,” a film of simple themes, minimal dialogue and eloquent imagery. We begin with an American, in Paris. The opening scenes of Neil (Ben Affleck) and his local love, Marina (Olga Kurylenko), are grainy, color-saturated home video, the heightened spectrum of euphoric new love. That passionate flush is replaced by luminous imagery of the couple on a bridge over the Seine, and playing in parks with Marina’s young daughter, Tatiana (Tatiana Chiline).
