Slow, dull and wielding absolutely no emotional impact despite a fine cast.

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

With a wimpy protagonist and a reticent director driving the story, The City of Your Final Destination doesn't go far enough.

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.

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.

What was intended as a tart elegy for a vanished way of life becomes a valedictory to a certain kind of filmmaking: beautifully appointed, intelligently played, and civilized into inertia.

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.

It's a fine cast, but this is an example for me of actors being really pulled down by the material.

Destined to be little more than a footnote in the anthology of extraordinary films to come out of the long creative collaboration between producer Merchant, director James Ivory and screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala.

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.

This long and overly genteel adaptation of Peter Cameron's 2002 novel never quite comes to a boil.

The City of Your Final Destination is lovely to look at -- and languid to the point of stultifying torpor, as interesting characters make speeches to one another about life, love, and literature.

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.

Ivory seems lost; it's as if he needs decades of distance and a canonized voice to bring out his best work.

Languid, multi-accented adaptation of the contempo novel by Peter Cameron suffers from an unfocused screenplay and direction.
