Ineffective adaptation of Ian McEwan's intriguing novel

Languidly traverses a climate of moral ambiguity and emotional torpor without spilling any vino on the palazzo's floor.

Audience Reviews for Comfort of Strangers

The synopsis of this film makes it sound much more interesting than it actually is. A bizarre story that just never seems to lift into anything remotely exciting, instead a slow, dull watch hoping for a glimpse of excitement, which never appears

Venice is the perfect back drop for this movie about lust and obssession and love?Helen Mirren and Christopher Walken are amazing.

Super Reviewer

A study of how a director can control performances, tone, editing and cinematography to create an overwhelming mood of menace.

    1. Robert: My father, was a very big man.. and all his life, he wore a black mustache. When it was no longer black, he used a small brush, -- such as ladies use for their eyes. Mascara -- to keep it black. You could not speak, at the dinner table unless first spoken to by my father.
