Critic Review - Mark Reviews Movies

For in all the bluntness of its visual panache and Firth's steady performance, the movie adds up to little more than a study in situational irony.

Completely missed the point of the ending: it was not situation irony if you had realized that all Firth's character was looking for was a moment of clarity. The reviewer here is assuming that once that has been achieved, the character would go on to live a good life. I think the movie implies that he has already lived that life and he is satisfied with whatever happens now.
