The Kreutzer Sonata Reviews

Rose partners up again with his go to guy Huston for a torrid tale of male jealousy out of control. It has a thoughtful, insightful script but is spoiled by its cheap look and technique.

I've always enjoyed Danny Huston's on screen presence (he may just be the living embodiment of the devil), and he's always capable of keeping you interested when he balances your pre-conceived ideas about the character with some pathos. One of his best performances is IvansXTC, and here he is re-teamed with the same director, Bernard Rose. This is the second part of a proposed trilogy of Tolstoy tales, and stylistically this definitely carries on from IvansXTC. Is his Pianist wife cheating on him? Is he imagining all the glances between her and Aiden, the Violinist? Is all the rough sex a bit too much? Though not as compelling here than as Ivan, the man set to self destruct, Huston shows enough inner turmoil and frustrated jealousy to keep your attention.
