    Oh, my god, what is this film? Is it social drama? Is it a war drama? Is it a romantic drama or biographical film? What is it?? The film tries to cover so many different themes, it begins to confuse itself soon enough. It has a strong beginning, but half-way through it becomes overly sentimental and Keira Knightley turns to her usual acting of pining and pouty lips. Sheeh. I thought I was going to see a Dylan Thomas focused film, but all I got is barely audible/recognisable Welsh accents and naive storytelling.

    makes a point ... does this subtly ... the way it's filmed and directed is marvellous ... requires patience so not really for those exclusively rambo.

    Well I see the North American audience and the critics did not like this film. I'm not sure what people were expecting. I enjoyed it. Everyone smoked like chimneys in that era...what a different world we live in now!

    Beautiful at times with some good performances and nice ideas but the key relationships and events in this movie never fully feel explained or believable: I am a bit fan of 'show' not 'tell' but at times I feel like neither are really happening and things just occur before your eyes that don't mean anything. At the end of the film I felt I had enjoyed the experience yet I also felt fairly empty.

    With a narrative that lacks focus and awkwardly misplaced dialogue, this romance rivalry flick tends to become frustrating, despite its devoted performances.

    A serious drama that will leave many struggling to take anyone involved with it too seriously. It had the potential to be a very interesting film but actually ends up being a dull affair that I'm already starting to forget only an hour or so after watching it. How did it actually end again?

    Almost overwhelmingly depressing film sorely lacking in actual love or romance. Messed up people with messed up lives. However, it is a "classy" picture as I called it before seeing and there's some great cinematography work, but the heart and soul of the film just isn't powerful enough. And Cillian Murphy just isn't in it enough! ;D Before Seeing: The movie that nearly crippled "Brothers & Sisters"! Thanks a lot, Miller!!! >:(

    I thought the story was kind of weird. However, the actors' performances were great. Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller and Cillian Murphy all had emotional performances.
