The film fails to entertain in the conventional sense of the term, and often feels like a documentary.
The film swirls about frantically in the effort to entertain, has a terrible Bob Fosse-like dance sequence and generally overstays its welcome.

While intended as a comedy, there's not a scintilla of wit to be found here, let alone an honest-to-goodness laugh, and at over two hours, it goes way beyond a joke.
A real oddity, shifting gear after the first half-hour from whimsical melodrama to morality-tale-cum-psychodrama.
An enjoyably barmy movie that plunders from everything from Cabaret to Cocteau's Orphée.
