  • This is no better, and no worse, than two hours of particularly posh soap opera.

  • A lengthy ensemble piece that's emotionally distant but rarely dull.

  • Quite how this segues into a grand finale defining bathos to the strains of Beethoven almost beggars description, but failed seriousness to this degree of screaming awfulness is choice indeed - unfortunately, for all the wrong reasons.

  • Save for one sentimental subplot, the writer-director clearly doesn't care for these people very much. Nor is there much reason for viewers to care, either.

  • Clichéd and contrived.

    Dec 14, 2007 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • It's hard to get past an almost sadistic aloofness in the storytelling, and several of Fiennes's flapping plot strands wither on the vine.
