My Review- Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

As weird as the name sounds, with Ewan McGregor’s acting, and a good, improbable but plausible storyline, this movie actually exceeded my expectations. It has a love story, Brit politics, environmental issues, terrorism, comedy, international intrigue, and you get to see Ewan McGregor in his underwear! What more could you ask for?

After a Yemeni sheik goes salmon fishing in the UK, he decides that it is exactly what his country needs, and thus hires a consulting firm to get the job done. The Brits get involved to create a smokescreen of good relations with Yemen and everything moves along smoothly until some other tribesmen decide the project is just “the West” moving in to take over, and begin plotting to stop it.

The Yemeni sheik makes some very insightful observations and I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this simple story.

After 20 years of being in a sometimes happy, sometimes frustrated marriage, I decided it was time for me to stop living a life of lies and deceit and be true to who I really was, a gay man, and to start pursuing my own pathway to happiness. That pathway has had many high points and low points with many obstacles thrown at me by fate. While I have met many wonderfully sweet men over the years, some for short term relationships and others for brief encounters, my search continues for that one "Mr. Right" that I can be with long term, sharing everything in our lives together. http://bearchub4u.com/search.html to see who I'm searching for. Maybe it's you?
