Critic Reviews for The Triumph of Love
I was periodically put off by a certain self-consciousness of delivery.
The characters in Triumph of Love are trifles, so that the farcical situation, which depends on the audience buying quick changes of heart -- like falling in love in an instant -- has no resonance.
In short, a film dependent on deception relies on the Clark Kent school of disguise, and it doesn't work.
It could have been something special, but two things drag it down to mediocrity -- director Clare Peploe's misunderstanding of Marivaux's rhythms, and Mira Sorvino's limitations as a classical actress.
Audience Reviews for The Triumph of Love
This witty movie/play will keep you on the edge of your seat and guessing to the end, "Will she get her love or won't she." Very charming movie.
You can tell it was originally a play meant for the 17th century courts of France. That doesn't mean that it was meant to be made into a movie...and personally, I would have rather seen it done as a play...I would have liked it more. Though I did love Ben Kingsley!
