  • Nonetheless, at its best, it has some of the same qualities as Ophls' [Letter from an Unknown Woman].

  • After a while, I didn't know where to look. Anywhere but at the screen.

  • Perhaps the added strains of working in a foreign language was its downfall - this is Leconte's first film to be made in English - although you wonder if the result could have been any worse if he'd been directing in Tongan.

  • Despite decent performances, a promising dramatic set-up leads to little of real interest.

  • The anguish of the lovers' decade-long separation can't be evoked in a matter of minutes ...

  • The actors are smoothly professional and the production feels polished. But it's hard to recommend a romance without passion, no matter how pretty it looks.

    The on screen chemistry between the two leads is as flat as the rest of the movie. Alan Rickman is its only saving grace in my opinion!
