Chromophobia Reviews

December 14, 2007
Clichd and contrived.

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.

One is unsure what the menu is meant to be in this satire/drama/melodrama.

Given the implausible contrivances that link these disparate protagonists, though, it's hard to care much about any of them in a chilly drama whose sleek aesthetic masks a hollow soul.

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.

Chromophobia, incidentally, is an irrational fear of colour. Someting we could have done with a bit more of.

Kristin Scott Thomas is marvellous but director Martha Fiennes fails to tie together all the remaining plot strands convincingly.

The performances are fine but the multiple story strands never really add up to much and the film fails to engage on an emotional level.

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.
