At such moments of transcendent drama -- and there are enough to make it worthwhile -- The Comedians is easily forgiven its other sins.

A plodding, low-key, and eventually tedious melodrama.

A sadly inept adaptation of Graham Greene's novel.

It is conventional and obvious, indeed, and is rendered no better or more beguiling by some rather superfluous additions of amorous scenes.

The movie tries to be serious and politically significant, and succeeds only in being tedious and pompous.
