The City of Your Final Destination Reviews

Simon Miraudo

The performances feel honest, and are perfectly attuned to Ivory's sauntering directorial pace. No one is in a hurry to have any epiphanies or enjoy the release of emotional catharsis. I appreciated it.

With all the cinematic trademarks of a James Ivory film, this adaptation of Peter Cameron?s novel seduces us slowly, as we get to know the characters whose lives are intertwined for better and for worse

It's like Paul McCartney's songs after the split with John Lennon - there's some good stuff, but nothing classic.

A movie that feels as if it should have been a masterpiece. As it is, it's flawed, uneven work but deserves careful viewing.

Like all Merchant/Ivory films, The City of Your Final Destination quietly shimmers.

City is a talky melodrama, and some of the dialogue is oddly stiff. But it's a pleasure to watch great actors dig into this literary material, and the movie looks sunny and spectacular.

There's no dramatic mainspring to the story, but the civilized dialogue is refreshing, the South American locations are lovely and Jorge Drexler's score is rapturously romantic.

It's gorgeous to look at. It has literate, well-spoken people. It has marvelously sensitive performances from Hopkins and Sanada.

One can dislike half of what Merchant Ivory has done and yet, in principle, still support the cause. Cutting-edge isn't all.

A small film, at times a creaky one -- but I liked it.

A sophisticated drama about love and literary matters skillfully and sensitively directed by James Ivory.

Partly because the rarefied aesthetic climes conjured by the film barely exist anymore, its story feels as quaint as the once-vital Merchant Ivory ethos of hothouse nostalgia -- with its antique-shop sensibility and Anglo-European snob appeal -- does.

The new film from James Ivory is leisurely paced, lacking in narrative drive perhaps, but rich in nuance, dialogue and atmosphere. Marvelous performances by Anthony Hopkins, Laura Linney and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

James Ivory and cast make every scene flutter with feeling in this adaptation of Peter Cameron's 2002 novel, written for the screen by Ivory's collaborator-of-50-years, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala.

Quiet, deliberate and understated in its humor and romance...a subtle, polished story...There is, one hopes, still room for a film as charming and layered as this one.

Elegant, enthralling journey into self-discovery - with James Ivory continuing the richly refined, tantalizing, exotic Merchant/Ivory storytelling tradition.
